A big thans to Tom for sending in the below. Tom added:

"The brochure for Earl St School Centenary in 1976.

Earl St was the earliest of this level of school in Tredegar.

I belive it gave a reat start to life since the teachers both taught and motivated. This is shown by the star scholars from my own time (or thereabouts)-

Neil Phillips was the doctor for the England World Cup winning team of 1966.

Garet Davies was the star of the BBC soap- "Compact" of the 1960s and later directed many BBC productions.

David Bowen Thomas was a senior man at the Science Museum. He was awarded the Fellowship of Royal Photographic Soc and wrote several books including- "Origins of the Motion Picture Industry"

Frank Hoare was leader of the Red Arrows."
Tom was not 100% sure about frank, and he may have possibly have gone to Georgetown. Maybe somebody can confirm this ?
