    With my new residency in Bradford comes new places to explore and there is plenty to go at round here. I noticed Pudsey Grangefield school old building and thought it must be worth a pop

    Info shamelessy yoinked off the net :D

    "Pudsey Grangefield School is a state secondary school in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. It was built in 1911 with construction starting in mid-1909. For around 60 Years it was called Pudsey Grammar School, since then it has been Pudsey Grangefield School. It was later given the status of a specialist college of Maths and Computing.

    It serves around 1185 pupils from the surrounding area along with two other Pudsey schools, Crawshaw and Preisthorpe. The school also runs the Pudsey Consortium sixth form with these two schools.

    The school's life-long logo has been the official coat of arms of Pudsey, bearing the slogan "Be Just and Fear Not". The logo can be seen built into the front of the original Grammar School Building as well as on the school uniform.

    On 1 September 2008 the headteacher was given the keys to the new building and the teachers were allowed to prepare for the new school year, beginning on 3 September. The original, Grade II Listed Grammar School building at the front of the old site will be sold off as flats, with the rest of the old site being demolished in order to allow construction of a vast open recreational area for the new building."

    Sadly as with most buildings of this era the pikies have picked her bare in the space of 18 months (including releiving the domes of all the leadwork) and it is quite trashed but a good wander round no less.

    As it was in 1911.
