Here are three school photos from Leigh Street School.
I think that they were taken in the early 1960s.
They were sent in by Martin Leigh.
I loved the old school buildings - made of Accrington Brick. It's such a shame they were demolished.
I liked the partition in the junior school that seperated classes 3 & 5 and the open fire in the first class in the infants. Does anyone remember the railings and the gate between the infant and junior school? The infant kids looked through in awe at the "big" kids.

Mr Renwick and Miss Degroote
If anyone recognises themselves, or indeed anyone else, please let us know so we can put your names on the post..
Many thanks, Martin. :)
