|18th November 2005.
View of New Bewerley Community Primary School on Beeston Road. Dating back to 1880, it was originally Beeston Hill Board School and has at times been Hillside Primary in 1996. A listed building designed by R.L. Adams in a classical style, the frontage remains much the same though it has been extended at the back. The building on the right, the caretaker's house, is also listed. By 2006 the school has been renamed New Bewerley Community Primary School following the merger of Hillside with Greenwood Primary School. It is due to transfer to a new site in 2007.

|||Bewerley Street Community School under construction (Beeston)
Image shows construction work in progress on the new Bewerley Street Community School in Beeston Road. The innovative design, said to resemble a spaceship, cost £4.6 million to build and the classrooms are all constructed around a central hall. The name was chosen to commemorate the first of the Board Schools to be built in Leeds, Bewerley Street Infants School in 1873, not far from this new school. The provision of the community school meant the closure of two old schools, Hillside and Greenwood. The new building also includes a 78 place childrens' centre with facilities for year round, 8am. - 6pm., childcare, and caters for 15 children with special educational needs. To help fulfill the needs of the wider community there is a one-stop shop and new library next to the school. The contractors are Kier Northern in partnership with Leeds City Council. Bewerley Street Community School was to open four weeks ahead of schedule in November 2006. Photograph courtesy of Lynn Rhodes.
