An Edwardian school with many of the period features being uncovered thanks to pikeys ripping down suspended ceilings in their ever widening hunt for copper and other scrap metals. Quite trashed by both time, moisture and aforementioned pikeys but nonetheless a good explore.

Visited with Kook, photos by me. Taken mainly using a 50mm prime, although a Manual shooting schoolboy error was committed by leaving the ISO on 12800 therefore giving the photos far too much grain.

Thanks to Reform for original information / initial visit and to Squirrell 911 for the previously nicked history as below.

"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."


On with the photos...

Old school Timpani - The Queensbury band of August 19-- I'd be willing to bet sometime in the late 80's early 90's as we found a Pepsi can with a May 93 use by date on not long after.

A rather old reel to reel tape recorder.

I adjusted the ISO at this point... The longer upstairs corridor. Stairs to the left led to the library, Kook got photos of this as I was too busy fucking around with the loft staircase.
