Butler 34, Summer 1956

John Chapman writes: This was taken towards the end of the school year in 1956 and shows the first intake to 34 (I think).  One or two had failed 11+ and 13+ more than once, then came to WC, did 3rd and 5th forms and landed 8 'O' levels, which might indicate the 11+ was a wonky old system!
