St Catherines School

A Memory of Barton Upon Irwell

I am trying to remember old schoolmates, Greham Humpries, Carol Taylor, Frank Birch (and sister), Julie wood ect. There were not many in the school but we had good times. I remember carrying coke in from the yard. I remember the teachers Mrs Williams, Miss Hibbert, Miss Humphries. We did PE in the assembly room/classroom. Does anyone else remember these times? If so could they get in touch please. I left the Barton area when I got married in 1972, after a fair bit of travelling I now reside in Clifton, Swinton.

Hi Kenneth. I went to St Catherine's too but maybe later than you. I was there between 1957 to 1962. The teachers were Mrs Willey, Miss Leach and Mrs Wright the dinner lady. My memories are quite similar to yours.
