Is the old school in South Everard Street still there?

If so, could someone please take a couple of snaps of it for someone who is interested because one of his great aunts was a teacher there.

Many thanks.

I don't know anything about All Saints school, was it the school shown on this map? If so did it still have the same layout in the 50s?

It would be nice if someone who knows the school could print this map out and colour in the buildings, if they were still the same. In the lower playground what was the long building to the left, a bike shed?

Yes OG, that's the one, what does it say in brackets, under the word "School"?

Looks to have been quite sizeable as there were 187 boys, 187 girls and 146 infants in 1916. All of this with just three teachers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Roger, could you let us know what bits of the school were where? That would be great.

Information rolling in thick & fast.

Amazing that just the other day, many of us didn't even know there used to be a school there!

Just goes to prove, if we ask the question, the answer is always out there!

Well, now I need to know what it sold and who kept it, nosey aren't I?
(It would be good if you could discover who owns it and get a look inside.)

It is amazing how one small thing just snowballs!
