And now the school is trying to trace Raymond Long, former head boy of Christ Church Secondary Boys School, as St Aidan’s looks to mark its 50th Anniversary in 2018/19.

Mrs O’Neill, who later went on to study at Durham University and then became a Teacher of Maths and ICT, remembered being with Canon Baines, the then Vicar of St Peter’s as well as Raymond Long. She also said the Headteacher was Miss Hindmarsh when it opened in 1968.
