Coldcotes Secondary School / North Farm Middle School, view from (Gipton) (16 comments)
Colour imageUndated. 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.
