Staplefield school

Teachers and pupils of Staplefield school gather for what seems to be a presentation. But who is presenting what to whom and why is a mystery to me. I note that the vicar is in attendance.

I think I can see my mum, Evelyn Alexander, on the extreme right.
The lady in the spotted dress with white shoes is Mrs Elsie Robins.

I have just came across this page and spotted myself, third from left with black hair, next to Wendy and Margaret.

In the second row to the right of Pete (see above) is Roy Card from Slough Green. I'm next in the same row, peering over my mum's shoulder.
Mum is making a presentation to our excellent head teacher, Mrs Pryde. I think the vicar, Rev. Polehill, is behind and to the right of Mrs Pryde.

John Robins beat me to it - yes, Mrs Pryde was an excellent teacher.
Her son (Iain?) was in the same year (I think!) as John and I, and went to Christ's Hospital.

Second row right first child is Ivy Lane and next to her is Christine Cave.
Tom Perry is peering over Mrs Pryde's right shoulder and I think the girl in the check dress in the front row is Susan Hocken.

My mum, Ivy Lane, says that the girl in the checked dress is actually Jill Atkinson.
Added by Jody Franks on 30 April 2016
Ivy is correct. It is Jill Atkinson in the checked dress, and I am her sister Julie in the second row in front of Rev. Polehill.
