Upper Sixth Form

Here is a group of Upper 6th from pupils, several taking the chance to smoke on one on the lanes near the school.  This was close to the school's cross-country running course at Heaton Bradford.

Thank you to Richard Hodgson who wrote:

"I attended St Bede's from 1956-63, in 1A to 5 alpha, Lower 6, Upper 6.  I can put names to two of the boys in this picture. 

-  John Kilkoyne, Keighley, is the boy to the right of Michael Hayes, as one looks at the pic.

-  George Truelove, also Keighley, is the tall boy with glasses.

These are very evocative pictures. I never knew that such everyday scenes were being recorded. Thanks for posting them.
