All the pupils at a former Ilkeston school can be seen lining up for the camera in this shot from almost 50 years ago.

The remarkable picture of the former Hallcroft School was sent in by ex-pupil Dave Gunn.

It was taken in 1964 , four years after the school was formed by the merger of Hallcroft girls’ and boys’ schools.

The school later merged Gladstone and Cavendish schools to become Cantelupe, which closed in 1997.
