Horsforth National School Logbook Extracts 1916

3rd April 1916 These children have been examined by me and I find the following much behind the rest of the class in attainments;  they have come directly from the 2nd class in the Infants School but owing to their age it has been thought advisable to promote them now:

Harry Hawkshaw, Hugh Roddam, Sam Stones, Chas. Houlden, Wm Conn, Jesse Gaunt, Marg. Croft, Phyllis Britton

Hannah Holmes has not been to school since before Christmas.  Florence Lawson has been absent from the Infants School for eight weeks.
