Coldcotes Secondary School / North Farm Middle School, view from


Coldcotes Secondary School / North Farm Middle School, view from
Description:
Undated. View from the snow-covered grounds of a school at the junction of Thorn Walk and North Farm Road. This was originally Coldcotes School, which incorporated a nursery, infants, junior and secondary school. The part of the school seen at the right edge was the secondary school. The school was later split up into 4 schools, Thorn Primary, Dorset Primary, North Farm Middle and Oak Tree Middle; this side was North Farm Middle. It would later become Oakwood Primary after the other schools were demolished, but this has also since been demolished and replaced by a new Oakwood Primary School. Oak Tree Drive is in the foreground, North Farm Road runs from the left edge by the junction with Thorn Drive and continues up the hill in the centre background, while Thorn Walk is at the far side of the school on the right. Houses visible include the semi-detached pair of 2 Thorn Drive and 63 North Farm Road facing forwards on the left.

I went to this school from 83-87. The Annexes on the left were my form room (1-4). The main building on the left was where we were teached science with Mr Oglvie. Good memories including running up that hill in P.E.!!!!

I was at Coldcotes Girls Secondary, leaving in 1971 aged 15yrs to start my first Job at John Temple in Seacroft. The headmistress was Mrs Wynne and my class teacher was, if memory serves me well, the schools first male teacher, his name was Mr Hart. We had a class in the prefab on the left of the photo, the female teacher was so very kind and I loved her, can't remember her name however she had a "Pot" hand. My best friends were Rita Langstaff (Oh where is she?)and Dorothy Knovorgorski, who sadly passed away at a very young age.
