Alwoodley Council School, fire (Alwoodley)
Black & White image27th February 1941. View shows the burnt-out remains of the temporary Alwoodley Council School at the corner of King Lane and Nursery Lane following a fire which completely destroyed the wooden structure. No-one was hurt as most of the pupils had gone back in the afternoon to find the school ablaze. The few pupils and staff remaining on site managed to get out safely after the fire spread quickly, believed to have been started by a spark from a combustion stove. The pupils were afterwards accommodated in classrooms across the field at Allerton High school until two more wooden huts were constructed for them, each housing two classes divided by a large two-sided blackboard.

Alwoodley Council School, fire (Alwoodley)
Black & White image27th February 1941. View shows firemen inspecting the burnt out remains of Alwoodley Council School's temporary wooden building after it was gutted by a fire believed to have been started by a spark from a combustion stove. The fire broke out at lunchtime when only about 15 of the 160 pupils were on the premises plus about 4 staff including headmistress Miss Pimp. The children had finished their lunch and the staff were about to start theirs when it happened. Everyone got out safely but most of the equipment and possessions were destroyed. The school, on the corner of King Lane and Nursery Lane, had been built as a temporary structure four years earlier; after the pupils were housed at Alwoodley High School for a while another temporary wooden structure was built for them.

Alwoodley Council School, fire (Alwoodley)
Black & White image27th February 1941. View shows firemen inspecting the remains of Alwoodley Council School following a fire which completely gutted it. The wooden building was a temporary structure at the corner of King Lane and Nursery Lane, built 4 years earlier to replace a more primitive building. The school had accommodated about 160 children up to the age of 11 but only about 15 were on the premises at the time as the fire broke out at lunchtime when most pupils had gone home for dinner. About 4 staff including headmistress Miss Pimp were also present. Children were told to leave school at once without bothering with outer clothes or gas masks, and all got out safely but the fire brigade could do little to save the building or its contents. The fire, which spread very quickly, was believed to have been started by a spark from a combustion stove in one of the classrooms.
