Does anyone know the year that it closed? Come to think - the year that it opened would be handy too - along with any other info. :)

I went to Edmund Campion from 1966 to 1968. Horrible school. It was full of sadistic bullies. They were the teachers. The worst offenders were Russell, Kelly and the games teacher called Middlehurst. The kids were ok but it was an all boys school. It was also a catholic school so it was full of bigots.
The holy roman teachers and priests will be pleased to know I am married to a Protestant and have not seen the inside of a catholic church for years.

Opened about 1963/64. Not sure when it closed. Maybe around 1982?
It was still open when I left School in 1969.
I went to Mount Carmel, which was the Sister School.
My Cousins went to Eddie Camp.

I enjoyed this school met lots of new kids, brilliant gym, I was great at cross country, and represented the football team, Mr Mercer woodwork teacher and cricket player, Mr Booth, Mr Fyldes form teacher and devout catholic, I was surprised to lean it had closed, as I left the area to join the Royal Air Force, Mr Norris History, Mr Westhead I think for Geography. I have great memories...
