Site History;
King Edward VII School
(KE7) was an LEA maintained 11-19 comprehensive secondary school in Melton Mowbray,Leicestershire in England which closed in 2011. The school was situated on a 56-acre (230,000 m2) green field site on the edge of Melton Mowbray. Formerly, the school was a public grammar school. A third phase specialist technology college, Microsoft Partner School, CISCO Academy and training college, the school received a range of awards for its work.The school was one of the first in the country to offer DiDA as a course, being one of the pilot schools for the qualification.

Our Visit..
Arrived at the site at around 4pm on a sunny Sunday afternoon, The site was hugeee. We was expecting a challenging access but it wasn't after all. First we went into the science labs and all lights and electric was working, it literally felt like someone was doing work inside the building, so we started walking around like ninjas just so we could check it all out first and make sure no one was on the site. After taking a couple of pictures, we began to explore other parts of this site, still the lights were all on throughout the building but not a sign of anyone inside or any work being done. No nothing. overall this was a successful explore with no bother. Check out my pics that follow!

Does anybody know if this is still standing or if its been demolished?
It's still standing, apparently will be turned into housing estate at some point - surprise surprise. I live in this town, went school here in very early 2000s. Great to see pics, brings back memories, feel sad it's just been totally abandoned even though I hated school haha!
