    Got absolutely soaked getting to this one!! Long grass, pouring rain and crawling through thick bushes is never a good combination... Got inside and realised I didn't have the tripod thing that attaches to the camera so had to shoot handheld sadly.. pretty trashed now but not a bad little explore to be honest

    The History

    Yorkshire Martyrs Catholic College, in Westgate Hill Street, Tong closed in the summer of 2010 and left behind a 49-year legacy.

    Pupils were divided between two other city Catholic secondary schools, St Joseph’s and St Bede’s, as part of a restructuring programme by the Diocese of Leeds. The reshuffle has been brought on by falling rolls of Catholic schoolchildren in the district.

    The school came into being in the form of a boys school, Cardinal Hinsley Grammar, and a girls school, Margaret Clitherow Grammar, in 1961. The girls’ school was initially run at a villa at St Joseph’s College and the boys’ school opened as an annexe to St Bede’s in an abandoned primary school in Thornton. Three years later the schools moved on to the existing site of Yorkshire Martyrs. A joint sixth-form centre opened in 1974 before a merger seven years later.

    Thanks mate, that explains why I couldn't find any history on this as Tong High School.. can I still edit this post now? Should be able to find a bit more history on the place now, looks like it actually closed in 2010 rather 2008.. open for 49 years as well :(

    I've changed the title. You might be able to edit the post, give it a go. If not, just post your text as a reply and I'll sort it.
