We recently located a box of slides in the school achives, dating back to the early 1960s, and have just had them developed. Here you can see pupils from FHS between 1961 and 1964. If you, or anyone you remember, is featured, please let me know by email:

With grateful thanks to Susannah Graham-Campbell (former 'Old Girl' and Chair of Old Girls' Society) who has identified many of the faces in these photos.

Below Sixth Form photograph: Sarah Bryant in blue holding blue & white coffee cup - she taught art at FHS until a few years ago. Also with striped cup in grey is Lesley Simpson (nee Walker) sitting next to Harriet Mackaskill (nee Cruickshank) in cream. Next in grey V neck is Susan Rawes. Standing smiling on R in red and blue is Rosemary Stamp (nee Boggis-Rolfe).
