Calverley Board School (Parkside School) from a watercolour by Fred Swaine (Calverley) (3 comments)
Colour imageUndated. This watercolour of Calverley Board School (later known as Parkside School) was painted from the artists bedroom window. From his home in Salisbury Street Fred Swaine was able to look across Victoria Park to the school. Salisbury Street was built in three phases in the 1890s and 1900s with the final phase in the middle added in 1910. The Board School was built at a cost of £4000 in 1900 to accommodate 264 children. Portman Street, where Fred Swaine once lived, runs between the buildings from the junction with Chapel Street, which cuts across from left to right. The roof in the foreground, left, belongs to the Cricket Pavillion in the park. Copyright Fred Swaine.

West Specialist Inclusive Learning Centre, 4 Town Street, Stanningley (Stanningley)
Colour image2000/2001 View of West Specialist Inclusive Learning Centre, a community special school located at number 4 Town Street. It caters for around 140 pupils, including 40 sixth form places. Children and young people attending are aged between 2 and 19 years. The school operated on a split site, the milestone site, seen here, addressing the need of pupils with more complex learning difficulties and also housing the 6th form. Children with moderate learning difficulties were taught at the Victoria Park site, 3 miles away, situated in the grounds of Farnley Park High Schools in temporary accommodation. Some of the children here had emotional, behaviourial or social needs. This site was due to close in the summer of 2010 and an alternative site was to be found.
