A former Hereson student is hoping to jog some memories with this class photo from circa 1954.
Sid Anning, who now lives in Chatham, has put some names to the faces but would love to complete the line up and hear from any old classmates.
Sid said: “This is my class at Hereson Secondary School in Ramsgate and was taken around I think about 1954 when we were all around 11 years of age.
“I have listed some of the names that we can remember, bearing in mind we will all be around 78 this year, and a lot of water has passed under the bridge since then.
“It would really be nice to hear from those that are still around and whether life has been good to them.
“Many were from the Manston Homes.”

I was going to suggest that “M. Tomlinson” could be cllr (and former Margate mayor) Mick Tomlinson, but I think he may be 2 or 3 years younger than 78?
Gary Jones was there a tad later but it would be good to hear about you all.
Sorry unable to go to that far back , however may be of intrest to someone.
My parents had a shop in Hereson Road aprox 1966-70 selling 1 penny ice lollies the que for them was about half hour long all from Hereson School.
Names (spelt wrong probaly ) include .
There are many more but i only about 8 at the time.
Hi All, I was in Mr Shepherds class, leaving in 1957 age 15, I thought Hereson school was right for the times, fond of promoting sport, had its own Metal and Woodwork classes, and discipline was key.
Take care all
Yes, great days at the Hereson Academy Of Life, my years there were 1953 to 1957. I’ve contacted Sid with my photos and information on our Hereson Old Boys Association which was formed after the 100th; Anniversary Reunion of the old Lillian Road Hereson School.
