Handcross School centenary photograph (1 of 13)

As part of the celebrations in 1978 for the 100th anniversary of the opening of Handcross School a photograph was taken of the pupils and teachers with the school used as an impressive backdrop.
The Large Version shows everyone numbered.
To my shame I can name only seven as follows.
23 David Atkin, 48 Darren Ray, 56 Mrs Joan Dick, 57 Miss Rosslyn Stenning (Headteacher), 58 Miss Margaret Morgan, 59 Mrs Peggy Harrison, 70 Alison Ray.
Please can anyone name any of the others?
