I've drove past this a few times on my way home from college and it looks pretty dead, the school has joined with another local school as one of these academy things and there has been a new building built nearby, there's fencing around the old building which has signs saying it is being demolished, would be very interested in having a look around this if anyone local does?

Had a look around it a few months ago, was well locked up, but not been back since. More interesting I suspect would be Stamford, Victorian frontage and all that.

I live literally down the road from Hartshead and went to School there. Sadly it has been demolished, there was some interesting boiler rooms and basement storage areas we used to bunk off in. I agree with Hidden though, Stamford would probably more interesting to explore.

A bit late i know. I've been looking over the website as i love old buildings and have a fascination with this sort of stuff.

Regarding Hartshead high school I was a pupil there 88-93. Last year i leart that the site was to be demolished and returned to 'Park Land' (council talk for selling it for housing i bet) Anyway, the housing trust that owns the Academy (New Charter) employ me to do certain works for them enabling me to ask for access to my old school. I was allowed in and took over 200 photos. I'll upload them here if you like...when i've figured out how to do it. I might even be able to get into Stamford school if i ask nicely as this is still standing. The police are using it to train their dogs at the moment though.


Love it!

Hi All,
how sad it was to hear Hartshead school has been demolished.
I was a pupil there in 67/68 so I am an oldy.

I remember several of the teachers, Mr Williamson, who used to teach French (he was feared), Mrs Samson who used to teach maths, plus several others.

We used to go on a French holiday, sponsored by the school, I wonder what every happened to the Videos taken covering the trip?
Many many memories.
