Wateringbury School 1950

Photo courtesy of Ruth Jones from the collection of Helen Long
I am sure John Long (I think he is front row second from left) is in this photo but do not know any of the other faces.
Can you help identify any?
Thanks to Janet Barden who thinks some of the names are as follows:
Back row extreme right is (I think) Rosemary Wheatley she was a resident at Dr. Barnardo’s, Kenward. Third Row: Marian McEvoy (also from Barnardo’s) ? ? ? Michael Town, ? , Martin Rogers, Peter Martin. Second Row : Extreme right Daphne Waghorn and the girl third from left was called Gayle but I can’t remember her surname. Front Row: Jean Hubbard. (I wonder where I was that day?)
