Hi
Can anyone tell me what year Leigh Road Secondary School closed? I know St Joseph RC Primary took over the building in 1963, then The Rosary Scondary in 1970/71. Thanks in advance :)

Hi Macca
I think Leigh Road Secondary closed in 1966 the year after I left.

Gone, but not forgotten.
I noticed that the link to images of this school no longer works, so I have uploaded this one, it looks like an early one.

Hi everyone. Just found this site. I was at Leigh Road from 1960 until July 1964. I remember Mr Rothera who was head teacher and Mr Darlington, Mr Spink Mr Vaughan , Mr Grocer who covered metalwork but that's all I can remember. Played chess, cricket and football for the school. If anyone remembers me I would be very interested. Cheers

Hi,

I worked in the Met offices opposite Leigh Rd School in the 1970s/1980s, and one of our
directors was very concerned that the lightning conductor on the school, (shown at the side of the
left hand chimney in Leigh Road), had collapsed. He visited the headmaster, and offered to have
our Maintenance team refix it, but he declined saying he wasn't allowed to authorise that.

It never did get repaired in the time that I was there,- I wonder if it's still the same now!!

Kind regards
Dave
