They say they’re the best years of your life.
So we’re harking back to your school days in today’s nostalgia gallery.
New friends, first achievements and plenty of special memories. But what do you remember most about your school years?
Today we’re taking a look at Mortimer Comprehensive School, and we’ve got plenty of smiling faces in our picture gallery above - students and teachers alike.
We’ve remembered the stage stars, sporting heroes and fundraising appeals, and been there for some exciting changes too.
What are your fondest memories of your school days? Do you recognise any familiar faces in our pictures?
