SNOWDON - scree walking circa 1956.

Tony Pickup thinks that the one on the left looks like Peter Holliday; the one with jersey is Mr Carey Geography teacher) and the one bringing up the rear look like Mick Robin
His guess for the bottom photo is :
Back row: ?, Pete Cross, Pete Merrick, ?, Dave Jenkins, ?, ? Front row: ?, Mrs Carey, ?, ?, Mr Carey, ?, Ken Spain, Surname White (can't recall Christian Name).

I think you've got the tags associatied with the wrong picture. .....and its Mick Robinson, not Mick Robins.

I could be completely wrong but, having seen a picture of Mr Carey and his family elsewhere, are the two boys next to him (he appears to be looking towards them) not his sons, with his daughter squatting down in front of him?
