Photograph number Schools 4


Milefield Middle School year 4

These pupils were amongst the first pupils to attend Milefield on its opening in 1968. The pupils in this photograph went straight into the fourth year where they stayed for two years until 1970. The Headmaster at the time was Tom Gannon. The school took pupils from the age of 9 to 13 from Brierley, Grimethorpe and Shafton. They then went onto Willowgarth High school for a further two years before leaving school at 15 in 1972. The year after the school leaving age went up to 16.
