1931 Wellington House

This well survived picture shows the 1931 Wellington House with Mr ‘Cherry’ Orchard as House master.

The pupil at the far left of the first standing row, slighty blurred, is John Woolley. In the back row, and 8th from the right side of the picture is his younger brother Jim Woolley. It is a sobering thought that John, the elder, was born in 1913 and Jim in 1915; just before and after the outbreak of World War I.

Seated third from left on the middle row is Stanley Dagley who went on to become headboy.
