I'm sure this picture is of Miss Rimmer's leaving presentation in school year 1970-71. (I contributed towards the clock). Chris Whitt was representing former pupils, he would have left Spondon Park in 1969. He can be seen to be wearing a Spondon Park old pupils tie which Mr Jones used to sell to school leavers! The picture appeared in the Derby Evening Telegraph with a short report of the ceremony and Mr Pitt's speech in which he likened Miss Rimmer to Gordon Banks. I believe Diane Brough would have been the head girl at that time.
