Schoolchildren pictured by our photographers on October 18, 1989 but at which school?

Perhaps you recognise the classroom or some of the children in it. The image was found in our archives, languishing at the bottom of a box, minus its caption. The only other information was on the back of the picture, which included the date given.

Children sit on wooden chairs, at wooden-topped desks, whereas most schools today will have plastic chairs and formica-topped desks. It appears there is some sort of art class in progress while one pupil sits and reads with the teacher (just off picture, to the right)

A larger image of the class is available to view on our website.

If you recognise anyone in the picture, let us know.

The Derwent Reservoir which is just over a third full. For the past two years the water has been so low the ruins of the village can be seen.
