Aberdare Boys Grammar School, 1978
Thanks to Alan Abraham for the photo,
and to ex-teachers Geoff Kerley, Judith Griffiths, Dr Geoff Abbott and Bob Harris for supplying staff names,
and to the following past students for naming the pupils:
Tim Kear, Steven Evans
Martin Silezin & Ian Fleming for the Upper Sixth  |  Gareth Chivers for the Lower Sixth
Huw Davies for Form 5
Huw Davies, Neil Jones, Allan Evans and Anthony Owen for Form 4  |  Jeremy Ryan with Roderic Davies for Form 3
Alyn Price for Form 2
and the following for Form 1
Tim Makin with Paul Treasure and John Charles
Philip Pugh with Matthew Lewis, Leighton Bryant, Andrew Abrahams, Rhodri Thomas and Dean Williams.
 

Boys whose index number starts with a ‘1’ were members of the group that started school in 1971,  i.e. upper sixth.

Boys whose index number starts with a ‘2’ were members of the group that started school in 1972,  i.e. lower sixth.

Boys whose index number starts with a ‘3’ were members of the group that started school in 1973,  i.e. fifth form.

Boys whose index number starts with a ‘4’ were members of the group that started school in 1974,  i.e. fourth form.

Boys whose index number starts with a ‘5’ were members of the group that started school in 1975,  i.e. third form.

Boys whose index number starts with a ‘6’ were members of the group that started school in 1976,  i.e. second form.

Boys whose index number starts with a ‘7’ were members of the group that started school in 1977,  i.e. first form.


These identifying numbers do not necessarily imply that a given boy started at school in 1971, 1972 etc.,
as he might have transferred to the school at a later date.

The Form 1 boys were the last to be admitted to the school in 1977 when it was still a Grammar School, the 82nd cohort.

Any additions or corrections will be gratefully received.
