Comments: Great to see this site. I was a pupil at West Road Infants and then at Thorne Grammar. I subsequently went to University in London and have enjoyed a career as a university teacher. Now retired. My mother was a also a teacher at West Road. I have some pics of staff at west road from 1950's that I can upload to this site if anyone is interested. I have just sent a load of very old pictures of Thorne and family pictures of the Rawson family ( old Mr Rawson was the chemist in King Street) to Richard Walker, Funeral Director. Someone out there may want to look through them!
