    Swanage Grammar School was established in 1929 in Swanage, Dorset, England. It closed in 1974. The building is now defunct (from 2002) having been used as a center for outdoor pursuits and geography based learning.

    A piece i grabbed from Google.

    I guess what is needed is someone with an interest in exploring, that knows where it is, and lives in the area - hmm, toughy that....

    er, why not just go see mate? - it's only a few miles from you via the Sandbanks ferry :thumb

    You can't explore from sitting behind your computer, grab your camera and go and have a look, same with the Dormy, then come back and post some reports up!

    The place still appears on streetview - but that dates from 2015 so I wouldnt know the latest. A caravan is at the back which could be security and the cameras look fresh

    and as of May 2013 it had on-site security according to a Swanage local website:

    I popped down there today for old times sake - I studied there from 1971-4. Slightly naughtily, I know, but I stepped over the wall and went down the bank. There I was met by a loud "Oi!" and a tattooed, topless man who obviously didn't want me on the property despite me stating that I was reminiscing.

    Do the owners have security living on that site? I was just wondering who that bloke was and if he had any right to sling me off.

    That sounds like Chris - the resident site security. So yes, I'm afraid he was acting within his authority. I know some people who have had a look around with him but to be honest the main building is becoming more unsafe each day, particularly the risk of falling slates, so this may not be possible now.

    Defo still there. Was on holiday at Ulwell last wek and went past it a lot. Wife wasn't going to let me have a look though! It has got signs of a caravan/van around the back and there looked like a large amount of wood being stripped out of it piled up outside. Don't know how good it would be. Certainly a fine looking building from the outset.
