School Photos.....

School photos were regularly taken. It is thought they were taken annually until the mid 60s, and bi-annually thereafter. Please click on the photo below for an enlarged version! Please note: some photos may take a while to open up as they are very large files.

1920
Many thanks to Cam Field who, in September 2016, found a copy of this November 1920 photo amongst her grandmother's belongings. Her grandmother, Kay Venables, went to St Elphin's!

1930
Many thanks to Christopher Wilson who found in his possession, courtesy of his late aunt, the 1930 School Photo which he kindly sent me in August 2018. The only history he was able to provide was that his mother (Joan Richards) and her younger sister, Barbara, attended a boarding school in Skegness. He believes the school closed down, his mother left school, and Barbara went on to St Elphin's. She was born in July 1916 so would have been just short of 14 when this photo was taken. Barbara Irene Richards was from Ilkeston in Derbyshire.
