    Word classes only refer to words themselves, what you have posted here is a clause, i.e. a group of words that contain a verb and form either a complete sentance or part of a sentance.

    As for the words themselves, within this particular clause:
    a = determiner (indefinate article)
    School = noun (common)
    Where = conjunction
    Boys = noun (common)
    Wore = verb
    Ties = noun (common)
    And = conjunction
    carried = verb
    Briefcases = noun (common)

    Sounds like you need a good English language / grammar book to help you out. The CGP ones are quite good.
