Class of . . . terminology, clarification.
The designation 'Class of ' refers to the July of the year of leaving of the cohort of students of which you were a member; assuming this to be after 2 years in the Sixth Form.
In other words it is the year you would have left CNS if you had stayed on for 2 years in the Sixth Form.
Hence, if you left school at 16 in 1974, you are part of Class of 1976.
If you left school in the upper sixth in July 1988, you are in Class of 1988.
If you left the school in Year 11 in July 1986; you are really part of Class of 1988, because they are your peers who you spent five years with.
Similarly if you were expelled in S Year in May 1983, or left after 3rd Year Sixth in 1989; you are still part of Class of 1988.
Most commonly, it is the year you reached the age of 18.
To confirm your calculated Class-of designation, you should recognise the names of your class-mates listed under that year.
