Black & White imageUndated. Schoolboys line up to pose for the camera outside an entrance to Calverley Church School, with a similar line of schoolgirls in the background, right. A school is recorded in the Register of Burials for Calverley as early as 1630. It has been rebuilt several times, once in 1749 by Mason John Gott, father of Benjamin Gott of Armley. The school in this image was erected in 1878 at a cost of £1,600 and a further £300 was spent when it was enlarged in 1892. For many years it was known as the 'Brown Memorial School' in commemoration of the ministry of the Rev. Alfred Brown. The building stands to the north of St.Wilfrids Church.
