Christchurch Secondary Modern School Oldham Rd
« on: June 30, 2012, 07:26 PM »
There was a secondary school serving Christchurch which used to be between Oldham Rd and Taunton Rd, opposite the Hop Pole pub. Does anyone know when it was closed?

There's one from 1957 of Christ Church pupils on the Ashton-under-Lyne page on Facebook

Hi Maxxie, this photo is of, maybe, Infants 4 or Junior 1, St. Ann's, 1955 or 56. I'm sure I have another one somewhere.  I'll go on a photo hunt and see if I can find it.  I'd be interested to know if you recognise any of the faces.  I can still name quite a few of my classmates and wonder where and what has happened to them over the years.

I just love these old school class photos.  I have two of them, taken in about 1934/35 of me and my classmates, and can't help but be amazed at how the faces of UK children and their general overall appearance hasn't seemed to change in probably 20 or more years at about the same ages.   The kids on my two photos could easily be exchanged for those above, with so many similarities in hair styles, dress,  facial features and expressions.  It's simply amazing!!      Joyce   ;D ;D

Looking at the photo from the left 2nd row from bottom 5th girl in is my sister Yvonne Stanfield.
