Ken Watson writes:- "From memory, two of the pupils from this form went on to become teachers themselves, Phil Francis and Roger Jenkins. After completing his national service in the RAF and then Teachers college, Phil came back to teach at Downhills Central School some 4 or 5 years after completing his own secondary education there. He was also a member of the old scholars drama group."

Brenda Tomaszewski helped with identifications.
