    Doncaster High School for Girls was built in 1910 in an Edwardian Baroque style utilising red brick and white faience dressings, designed by J.M. Bottomley & G.T. Wellburn. In 1953 the school as extended to add a second floor, relocating the hall to the new floor in the process. The school then merged with Doncaster Grammar School in 1971 and was renamed Hall Cross Comprehensive, this school has now relocated to new premises.

    The site is now in the middle of redevelopment (being bulldozed), the central frontage is meant to be being saved but given the state the building is in I would not be surprised if it all gets flattened.

    Visited with Jane Eyre and Acid Reflux

    External shot, as you can see demolition has started!

    One of the classrooms, paint must have been a bit garish in its day!

    Lots of the classrooms still have work written on the board, first time I've seen a blackboard in a few years
