As Ilkeston School celebrates its centenary this year reader David Heathcote shared this image with the Advertiser and staff at the school.

The photograph shows a class at the King George Avenue school when it was called Ilkeston Secondary School in 1925.

On the middle row, first from the right is Julia Heathcote nee Wheatley, David’s mum.

He said: “The original photo hangs on my office wall and when I saw in the paper that the school was celebrating 100 years I thought it would be of interest.

“I took it along there and thought readers would like to see it too.”
