Mick Balmforth did us proud with a very enjoyable reunion on Saturday, which was my first in 45 years. Well done Mick and many thanks for going to the effort. I would very much like to contact Ian Paterson again, as I understand he is not very well, but would still love to communicate with him if at all possible. Can you help me David Paterson?

There is a Wikipedia page on SBGS. Sadly very thin on history of the school. Anyone with something to add might like to do so.

I believe my mother is on the 1931 panoramic. She is number 85 towards the right hand side. She was born (Warley) Marian Horner, 27011920 and died (York) Marian Reed exactly 95 years later, 27012015.

Hi Everyone

I am organising a reunion for my year at SBGS. The reunion is for 1968 starters and leavers in 1973 (5th form) or 1975 (6th form). The reunion will take on Saturday November 11th 2017 at Hollins Mill formerly The Works in Sowerby Bridge. The pub is opposite the library and old swimming baths. I also have a Facebook group for this - SBGS 1968-75 Reunion. Anyone who is interested in attending or wants more details please contact me through this site or the Facebook group. At present I have around 20 ex-pupils , a mixture of men and women who are going to attend. I organised a smaller gathering last year and it was enjoyed enormously by everyone who attended.

Best regards , Mick

Albert Ballard's retirement

Gordon Brearley was my 5th form teacher. No 5 looks like a young Malcolm Waddington. He was my French teacher as a first year and third year. He was my first year form teacher.
