This is a rather belated response, since I've only just discovered this site.
My connection is that I'm the son of former Wheatlands teacher Ken Trelfer. He left Wheatlands in 1959 and took a teaching post in Essex, moving from there to Hebburn on Tyneside in the eighties. He took early retirement and went to live in Catterick. He died in 2003 at the age of 82. His wife Vera, my mother, was a teacher at Oatlands Mount Primary School, later headmistress at Glasshouses School, near Pateley Bridge. She died in 2007.
Rosa Henderson was a keen cricketer. She and my father - with me in the back seat! - used to go rallying in her Hillman Minx in the late Fifties. She died about ten years ago. Bill Greenaway was indeed the Wooden Horse p-o-w.
Many teachers at that time would have served in the forces during WW2; my father had been a bomber pilot in the RAF. When he left the RAF in 1947/8, he underwent emergency training as a teacher. His first teaching post was at Western School.
I remember football and cricket at Wheatlands. As a 5 -7 year old, I would often accompany my father to school matches on Saturday mornings when he was refereeing/umpiring.
