Spondon House School - Class of the 1950s

We're very grateful to Steve Hempsall who recently sent us the set of photographs below of various classes from Spondon House School between 1950 and 1955.

The photos were originally in the possession of Steve's uncle, Maurice White, who taught at both Spondon House and later at the new school when it opened in the 1960s.

You'll see some of the photos also have names written on the back of them detailing who is in the photo (visible when you click on the images below).

If you were a pupil at Spondon House in the 1950s, take a look to see if you can spot yourself or anyone that you know/knew. How many faces and names do you remember? Can you fill in any of the gaps on Mr White's original notes on the back of the photos?

You can click here to share your thoughts and memories of these photos on the Spondon Online Message Board.
