Winterbourne - St Michael's School - whole school - 1973-74

Photo kindly sent in by Sharon Sheere - Thanks Sharon.

Sharon has reminded me that Joanne Kathleen Rowling would have been at the school in 1973/74.

JK was born in 1965 and enrolled at the school in 1970 [see School Admissions Register], so she would have been 8 or 9 in 1973/74,

and her sister, Diane, enrolled 1972, was two years younger.

If anyone thinks they can find them in this picture, please write to the WebMaster.

Or, better still, if you are looking at this photograph, Joanne or Diane, perhaps you could write and tell us if you are here..! (Please a thousand times..!)

See below for a list of names compiled by Sharon Sheere, nee Adams


New information just to hand (June 2012):   A member of our Museum committee has been to see Ian Potter, who used to live next door to JK. And although Ian never went to the same school as JK, he says that she always had dark hair and cut in a fringe. He cannot be 100% certain, but tells us that No135 would be Joanne and that Diane would be No142, also with a dark fringe.

Can anyone confirm this?
