I started at Glusburn School in the summer of 1953 and wondered why I couldn't recognize a single face on the recently posted class of 1952 photograph. Then the penny dropped!

Five year-olds in Glusburn and the Glusburn end of Crosshills went to Glusburn school for two years only, whereas the rest of the Crosshills five year-olds went to Sutton County Primary School, as did the Sutton kids who lived more local to that school than they did to the Church School.

At age seven we transferred to Sutton County Primary until we sat the 11 plus. The reason for the move was because Glusburn School was also the secondary school for Sutton / Crosshills / Glusburn and a few nearby villages (perhaps Cowling for instance), where the pupils who "failed" their 11-plus went. Yes, failed was the term used in those non-PC days.

If, in the future, any separate Glusburn School photos for the same year appear on the forum, don't be surprised if the pupils on one photo appear about 5 years older than those on the other!

For reference, at the time Sidney Laycock was the Head at Sutton and Winnie Harrison was the Head of the Infants part of Glusburn School.

Anybody know why school halls get smaller as you get older??

Back row far left possibly Paddy Reape. Back row third from right looks like Frank(?) Duckworth. Next to top row third from left is Margaret Pearce I think.
