On Saturday 19th October 1963 there was a formal opening ceremony for the major extensions to the school, these being the science and dining block, the workshops, the changing rooms and the gymnasium. Carol Coates (née Bovingdon) was heavily involved in organising the 2013 Reunion, which was held fifty years on to the day and commemorated this significant event in the school history, and has scanned an article from the school magazine 'Outlook' and a number of photos.
Colin Norman sent in photos of the panoramic photo of Rowantree Secondary School taken in November 1963. Each photo above links to a much larger one.
Certain teachers will be immediately familiar to those who attended the merged school in the 1970s, those being Ted McLeay (Deputy Head), Mr Gething (Maths), Mr Povey (Science), Len Sharp (History) and Mrs James (Art).
Colin also offers the names of Mr Baines (Maths), Mr Watts (Dt) , Mr Salisbury (Head), Mrs Giles (Science), Miss Wiggins (English), Miss Ackhurst (English), Mr Livermore (Dt), Mr Ackhurst (Dt) and Mr Dollimore (French).
