Coleford Secondary School in 1960.

A photo of Coleford Secondary School

A scan of an un-dated newspaper cutting of Coleford Secondary School in 1960.

Dave Nash added: "This photo was in the 'Review' a couple of years ago. It was submitted by someone trying to make contact with old school friends. Given the ages of some which I have identified I would say it must be at least 1960 and possibly 1961".
