Only realised this had closed down the other day, not sure when it last closed its doors but I'd guess at the end of the 2005/06 school year. There was a prolonged battle to save the school (maybe 3 or 4 years) with it ending up in the house of lords.

It's a special needs school and the council wanted to close it and send all the pupils off to 'normal' schools to include them into everyday society. What they really wanted though was to sell the land off to developers as its prime land in Wigan and houses built here now will go for an absolute fortune. The kids didn't want this and the parents didn't either but as always, money comes first with Wigan council.

As is often the case with me, I forgot to charge my camera so battery ran out almost straight away and had to take the photos on my phone, hence poor quality.
