Fall Lane, East Ardsley Girls' School

Fall Lane, East Ardsley Girls
c1920s. View shows East Ardsley Girls' School situated on Fall Lane. It was opened in 1892 to accommodate girls and infants, with space for 554 children altogether. In 1901 it was enlarged to take up to 614 pupils; by 1908 the average attendance was 301 girls and 267 infants. In 1975 a new infants school was built opposite and this became a Junior Mixed. Later the two schools were combined again as East Ardsley Primary School and in 2005 the old Victorian building was demolished to make way for a brand new building on the site.

During the demolition of the school a time capsule box was discovered behind the foundation stone.A number of items and coins of the time of the original build were inside. My daughter Katherine was invited to be present when the box was opened and was allowed to handle the items. She was pictured on the front page of the Morley Observer at the time holding a Victorian penny. The headmistress at the time was Marian Bean who retired a few years later
