This Photograph has been supplied by Brenda Thorpe (nee Hands) who was one of the first batch of 50 Students to join the College in February 1947, they should have joined the previous term, in 1946, but the rooms were not ready and they were sent home with assignments until the building was finished in February 1947. This photograph was taken during the summer term of 1948, and shows the first 180 students being the first intake of 50 in 1947 and the intake in Autumn 1947.
Brenda was Senior Student for both 1947 and 1948 and is seated immediately to Miss Wingates' left in the second picture.
