Hatfield School Panoramic photos and lists of Pupils and Staff. 1953-1978 v2.

Chris Hepden et al

This Post may be of interest to any other old pupils who are seeking to recover or reinforce old memories, before it’s too late.

The images for a single year – New Pupils, 14th September 1954 – are shown above as an example. Click on a photo to enlarge it, then moving the cursor on the image will magnify it.

I have hard-copy original photos of the panoramic New Entry photos, and some Sixth Forms for 1953 to 1970, and one of the whole school in May. 1966 – see the list below – and have made photographed copies, each panorama copied as multiple overlapping prints, each a .jpg file about 1 to 2Mb.I’d be pleased to send copies to any past pupils and Staff – preferably via Dropbox or a similar service, as the cumulative file sizes may be too great for attachment to an email. Please email me either directly, or via   admin@ourhatfield.org.uk   who will forward me your messages.

This Post was updated as Version 2 on 27/6/21. Since it was first published started in January 2020, several other HS pupils and Staff have kindly sent me additional photos, often of better quality than mine, and for additional years, so the list below results from a combined effort.

Acknowledgements – I’ve tried to note most of the helpers, and apologise if I’ve missed anybody; remember too that new contacts write quite often, so a new enthusiast may bring a new original photo:

1973 U6th from Ming Tam, a 6th form pupil at HS between 1971-73;  multiple years’ photos, many with full handwritten annotation of names, from Michael Hutton, HS 1955-62, who has also flattened and scanned lovingly stored rolled-up prints lent by others;  1971 and 1974 from Janice Herrington, HS 1971-1990;  1978 from Ian Shippen, HS 1978-85;  1966 from a team of David Edwards, David Kohn, Dee Golder and Paul Atkin, with many faces named (see the NTFMG Post);  1969 Sixth Form from Paul Jiggens.

Please check out the Names-to-Faces Matching Game or NTFMG Post, for details of current progress on a number of the prints, as well as how you can join in – there are still many faces unnamed.

Please email your request for photos to me via [admin@ourhatfield.org.uk] and they will pass me your message. When you write, say whether you would like a non-annotated copy of your year’s photo, or whether you’d like one with some name-matching partly done. Some years’ teams have a significant number of the faces already matched, but you may prefer to start afresh – at least to begin with….?

If anyone knows of originals or copies of these missing years – 1972, 1973, are especially urgently sought – also any of 1975-1977, and 1979 – 1989, I’d love to make copies somehow.

We also have some of the 6th Form photos, starting from 1960, and would be very grateful for any others you may have to add to the list – see below – we can offer other old pupils.

When you write, say whether you would prefer a multi-shot or a (usually pasted-together) full panoramic copy of your year’s photo – for some years we have both – and whether you’d like a non-annotated copy or one with some name-matching partly done. Some years’ Matching teams have a significant number of the faces already matched, but you may prefer to start afresh, at least to begin with?
