Ossett Grammar School Class & Staff Photographs

Several people have been kind enough to send in photographs of their time at Ossett Grammar School and reproduced here are a series of photographs of pupils pictured during school photography sessions, which I think occurred every couple of years or so. The pictures are arranged chronologically and the first photographs is from April 194o. If you have any Ossett Grammar School or Ossett School class photographs, I'd be delighted to publish them on this section of the ossett.net web site, giving full acknowledgment of the source.
