Bottesford school pupils in 1940
This photograph cut from the Grantham Journal in 1940 shows a class of pupils from Bottesford School. The picture was taken in the yard at the back of the school building on Grantham Road. The picture was supplied to the Journal by Mary Kirkland, from Bottesford. Mrs Kirkland was able to name most of the children, though not all. She did not supply the name of the form teacher standing at the side of the group.
