High well School opened its doors first in 1970s as felkirk middle school this then closed in the mid 1990s which is when it became known as the Felkirk school opening its doors in 2000 to house pupils (all boys) from the former moor top school in Ackworth,

The school was a specialist school for those with emotional and mental health issues as well as those with behavior issues.
There is 2 residential blocks for resident students (now where security are) these was built especially to house these students.

Due to so many students running away in the middle of the night the school stopped boarding students in 2010 and then changed its name to high well school and in 2015 the school finally closed its doors moving to another site of the former Chequerfield infants school in Pontefract keeping the name high well school.​

Thanks for looking.

Sometimes less is more. Rather than taking multiple near identical blurry pics from what now looks like a landfill site, try and take a few seconds to think what you"re actually shooting to make it more interesting for the viewer:thumb

I take it the Alarm has finally been silenced ;)

And welcome to the Forum & there is a "New Members Introduction" section .....hint
