Just been trawling through this thread with my wife Sheila. She was there from 1958-1962. She remembers those teachers Miss Reed, Miss Gumbly. Miss Cage. Miss Jewel. Sheila says that when she did cookery, it was on the upper floor of the building on the left of the photo on Lyn's post #134. I posted this photo from 1962 but, her 11yr old Brother scribbled all over it ( he's now 63yrs old) so I have attempted to clean it up with the unfortunate ruining of her friend's face. Sheila is in the middle front and was known as Sheila Rogers then. The only girl she can remember is Pauline Sugar who is back left. Incidentally, I went to the juniors for a couple of months in 1955 when I lived in Berners St. I later went to Gower St from 1957 to 1961.

Hi Lyn, my sister Helena went to Lozells Rd and her best friend Irene Fowkes from Kensington St. She always spoke a lot about a teacher call "Miss Fox Davies". It would have been in the early 50's.

From what my sister said, you were probably lucky that she had left...

Another Photo has cropped up Lyn belonging to Margaret Fry and with her permission i said i would post it on here. She said it was photo of a school trip to the Lake District from Lozells Secondary girls 1964. Different years were on this trip so not one specific class.lozells school64-001.jpg

hi rosielab (sue) as you said lozells girls did not have a uniform code until about a year before we left...i know you have some school reports so just wondered if the later ones show the school badge on them...if so would it be possible for you to scan one and post it on this thread please...
