In 1977 my father took a series of photos for Northampton High School, a private school for girls that at the time was based in Derngate, as part of their centenary celebrations – a number of the images appeared in their centenary magazine. I’m not quite sure how he got the gig though – quite possibly an amateur dramatics contact.


I must admit that I thought for a while about publishing these. They were taken in September 1970 at the school my aunt taught at – I showed her some of them last weekend, and I think she said it was in East London. It was over 40 years ago, but she remembered plenty of them – names and what they were like.
I was unsure about showing them as they’re not family, but I think they’re really good documentary portraits.
