    Leeds high school photos


    visited this girls school with @woopashoopaa and @Telf this was a very nice explore the school is quite tightly sealed up at the moment after having a walk around and telf saving the day once again with find a entry for us that spiderman would have been proud off. Once inside is a relaxed explore with lots of fixtures and fittings of its previous use still intact including the set of a previous TV set ( Monroe ) spent around 2 hours here. Before making our escape and thanks to telf for doing the driving. [​IMG] So here's some pics of the visit and history I found on the web..


    LGHS was founded in 1876, at a time when female education was limited but expanding. Frances Lupton and other members of the Ladies’ Honorary Council of the Yorkshire Board of Education decided that campaigning for access to the universities was of little use without better all-round education for girls, equivalent to what boys received at traditional academic grammar school. Established interests prevented the use of existing charitable funds, so Lupton and her colleagues created a new way forward: a joint stock company,
    The school motto was Age Quod Agis, which means "do what you do". While seemingly tautological at first glance, it is in fact a corruption of the Biblical exhortation, "whatsoever thy turn thy hand to, do it with all thy might". The pupils were divided into four houses, named after the four patron saints of the United Kingdom: Andrew, David, George and Patrick. Girls were placed into the houses that their families had been in before them. There were various house competitions throughout the year, mainly sports and arts orientated, the main one being the house music competition during the spring term.
    The school had three sections situated in the western suburbs of Headingley:

    Infant School (Rose Court): 3 to 7-year-olds
    Junior School (Ford House): 7 to 11-year-olds
    Senior School: 11 to 18-year-olds
    The Infant School (Rose Court) was situated on the large Senior School site on Headingley Lane, while the Junior School (Ford House) operated 1 mile (1.6 km) down the road in a converted mansion house. The Senior School building was built in the early 1900s, and efforts are currently being made to have the building listed. The fine oak wood panelling in the Assembly Hall detailed where Old Girls went to university on completion of their education at LGHS. The furniture within the Senior School Library was designed by Robert Thompson (The Mouseman), but was sold when the school moved to Alwoodley Gates (the Leeds Grammar School site).

    In 2004 LGHS was the highest performing school within the Leeds LEA area, achieving top results at both GCSE and A Level.[1]

    Merger with Leeds Grammar School[edit]
    In 2005 LGHS merged with Leeds Grammar School to form the Grammar School at Leeds (GSAL). The merged school administration took over LGHS in August 2005, however the schools did not physically merge until September 2008. At that time the Junior School (ages 7–11) and Senior School (ages 11–18) moved to Alwoodley Gates. Classes for girls and boys between the ages of 11 and 16 remain segregated, but all extracurricular activities are mixed. The Infant School moved to the Ford House building next to a new nursery school, currently operating as GSAL'S Rose Court Nursery and Pre-Prep.

    The school building was used as a filming location for the fictional St Matthews' Hospital in the new ITV medical drama Monroe, which was scheduled for broadcast in 2011

    Pics come out well with the good light mate :thumb (Although you have a duplicate pic and a very blurred one.)

    Nice to see it"s still open for business in a fashion :)

    I called back a few weeks ago for the external shots i never took when i visited in January . I"ve never seen so much security fencing around a building & perimiter area, talk about overkill & bolting the stable door too late lol

    Did you visit the Wetherspoons building next door ? i noticed it"s got Scaff on it now, and the Church over the road, and the two buildings next to the School &.....

    The Monroe programme is actually worth watching just for how well they created a perceived image of a working Hospital even though you know it"s all fake.
