Flexlands School was an all girls school opened in 1935, and had 3 recent additions made to it. The 'u' addition to the main building appeared to never have been used, as the walls were all unpainted brick. The gym addition was opened in 1990, and an art building was added in 1998, for it all to close in 2005. For a short amount of time a nursery was opened in part of the main building, but quickly closed, and the site became abandoned. As of now a company has acquired the land, and only requires permission from the environment agency to be demolished.
Since the last report on this place, i found the entire courtyard area has been bulldozed and cleared of foliage, certain trees are fenced to protect them, yet most doors i found wide open.

No apparent attempt at re-boarding the buildings was made, but the usual entrances were done like a fortress, the main entrance had a fence that was easily 10ft high, and the side was double padlocked. Whatever company that was set in to barricade the place wasn't very good, as within 5 mins i was in.
Rumors of homeless people being here recently were common, yet on this day we were left alone. On with the photos:

I never attempted to take photos upstairs as the floor had collapsed in places, definitely not structurally safe any more.

The Gym

The last time i came here i wasn't able to get in, but the kids have made a fair few ways in. The evidence of previous homeless people was everywhere, but nothing very recent.

This secondary building looked brand new, being built less than 10 years ago and abandoned after just 7 years.

Found multiple bottles of piss in this room from the homeless, but nothing that seemed very recent.

how can you tell if a bottle of piss is recent or not. Did you sniff it :eek:
not the only one that has said so in a report of this place, i wasn't gonna smell it. Clear dwelling of a homeless guy, with two massive bottles of yellow liquid. Enough said

Thanks for clearing that up bud. Nevermind Latrino, he's a bit pedantic:p
So effectively you were taking the piss from another report.

I used to be a pupil at Flexlands (87-97) and these photos are incredibly interesting and sad at the same time. The U shaped buildings on the left of the main house were used, they just never painted them! They were mostly classrooms for year 1 to year 5 as well as a science room (which had the only school computer I believe) The mosaic on the door leading to the courtyard was where I knocked myself out running in from playtime when I was about 7. I also remember the opening of the Ann Mais gym and climbing the ropes.

Thanks for these!

Great to hear from you, shame the place has now been completely demolished to make a bunch of returement homes. Sad really but the buildings were far gone from vandalism.
