The last one was 2010, the one before that was 2006. Every child who is there from the age of 11 should be in one during their seven years at CH. They are huge!

Is this a new thing Mrs C, and will the whole House be photographed? I don't remember that we've been offered any opportunity to buy a House photo since the group shot of new entrants (taken at the same time as the individual photos in the first term of their second form).

Dad 1953-1962 told me they had one. The camera took so long to swing from left to right and some boys appeared in it twice having ran from one end to the other!

Well I was there 58-63, and I definitely don't remember one.

And I don't remember one 54-61. Mind you, there is quite a lot I either forgot, or was totally oblivious to. When I read some of the memories that others post, I have no recollection of the events.

I can confirm what's been said - in the years 1954-62, no whole-school photo was ever taken. What's more, I don't remember ever seeing a whole-school photo from any period. If such a thing had existed, you'd expect it to be framed and displayed somewhere in the school.

Most of the "official" photographs of that era were done by Copnall's of Horsham - see http://www.horshamsociety.org/nlarchive/hs0209.pdf

I think there has been one or two reproduced on here
It is hard to make a comeback when you haven’t been anywhere.
