St. Michael’s Catholic College, Leeds, August 2010

First solo explore.

Sorry about the quality of the pictures, but I was tripod-and-torchless, so will be returning soon to go into the dark bits. It was a fun explore, but I was jumping at every noise as it’s right next to a police vehicle storage centre!

I came across this place a while back and was really interested when I did some research and saw some old reports on it. The sign outside the gates says Mount St. Mary’s Catholic High School, so that’s what I was doing my research on. As you can see from the pictures in this report, it doesn’t look much like a school. I figured it must be an old church that’s been converted into a school and will hopefully still have a big chapel in it. Once I got in I realised something was not quite right and upon doing some more research where I’d actually been was St. Michael’s College.

It opened as the Leeds Catholic College on 18th September 1905 and in 1906 acquired St. John's Lodge. A new building was constructed which opened at Easter 1909 and the old one became occupied by the Jesuit Community. The school became known as St. Michael's College in 1933.

A tech lab, that seems to be being used as a bathroom storage facility.

In 2005 the college merged with Mount St. Mary’s and was renamed as “Mount St. Mary’s West Siteâ€, from 2005 no further pupils were enrolled and the remaing pupils continued to move up the years, St. Michael’s was closed in July 2008. St. George’s Crypt (a shelter for vulnerable people) moved to the site temporarily for 15 months in Feb 2009 whilst their site on Great George St. was being refurbished.

No wonder that net is messed up if they were using it for shotput practice, all the basketballs were downstairs.
