St Bede's Photos From The 1960s

A particular highlight of new Archivist, Jo Wong's, first few weeks was these wonderful class photographs kindly sent in by Old Princethorpian Andrew Went, from his time at St Bede’s during the early/mid-1960s. Although we hold a small collection of photographs from St Bede’s here in the archives, these images were not among them and we are very grateful to Andrew for sharing them with us.

As many of you will know, St Bede’s was run by the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, who purchased St Mary’s Priory in 1966 in order to set up Princethorpe College. From September 1966 the majority of St Bede’s pupils moved up to Princethorpe College once they reached senior school age, so some of the faces in these photographs may well be familiar to those of you who attended Princethorpe in the late 1960s/early 1970s.

Do you spot anyone you recognise (or perhaps even yourself) in the photos? Do you remember the name of the class teacher? We, and Andrew, would love to hear from you if you do, or if you have memories about St Bede’s or Princethorpe from that time which you would like to share. Please do get in touch at archives@princethorpe.co.uk with any details.
