 Owen Rooks tells us: ”I can’t recollect what the system was for determining the size of classes, 38 of us in 1950, 27 in 1953. There were only four classrooms in the school itself and an annexe had to be opened in an old chapel in North Skelton.”

Craig Laffey tells us: “Nice to see a photograph or two of my dad Owen Laffey who is still alive and well in Scarborough.”
