Come on Guys we need help to solve the mystery

I came across your MSM website last night. I didn't go there although I am originally from Marlborough. 
I did go to St Mary's in Herd St though and am
enclosing a class photo from 1961.
Some of the girls in the photo would have
gone on to MSM. I saw that you had a picture from St Peter's Boys, so thought
that St Mary's should be represented! I've tried to remember most of the names - But it is 46 years ago!
Best wishes,
Kate Karstedt

Can anyone help with the missing names?

Thanks to Dave Leney for this picture from about 1954 taken at St Peter's Boys School
situated at the bottom of the High Street where the Library is now housed
.
The expressions on the faces are brilliant, having been through St Peter's also
my guess is that its the end of year party and they are watching a magician
