I left in July 1972 and recognise some of those in the photo.
Are they all staff?
I can't see Mr Kingsbury there though, and I know he was there for at least a year after I left, possibly longer!

I too left July 72 so think it must be September 72 or even later.
There is no miss Allen (home ec) and she was there in July 72 .
Plus I can't see Colin Brown (geog) , Sue Thomas ( deputy head 6th form) or Mr Cartledge (biology) either .
