    visited by myself today. was in the area and went there on the off chance.

    Be aware this is a very secure site, nearly every internal and external door is locked and is also being used by the police for dog training and is alarmed. You have been warned...

    Bit of history:

    Former governess Jessie Elliston (1858-1942) established a school in 1897 to prepare the daughters of gentlemen for home life. The school quickly outgrew its accommodations in Woodfield Lane and moved to a site in Ottways Lane in 1904, taking the name Parsons Mead from the new location's history as a meadow owned by the local clergy.

    As the school grew, the 1850s school house was extended and new buildings added. The school's focus changed from offering domestic and art courses to the full range of subjects including science and maths. In 1957, the school ceased to be privately owned and was made an educational trust.

    Parsons Mead closed on 7 July 2006. a month after the announcement of its closure. The school's trustees said they were unable to keep Parsons Mead going after the number of pupils fell below the break-even point.
