The top floor of that school was the "Food Office" in the war-time and immediate post-war 1940s where people used to get their hand-outs of orange juice, rose-hip syrup, powdered milk and cod-liver oil. The free facility was later moved to a single-storey prefabricated building in Fenton? Street near the bottom of Boundary Road

Mr Simcox was headmaster and his wife taught there too. I remember Mrs Prince, Mrs Bates, Mrs Little and Mr Cook. I do remember Mr Smeltzer as well. went to Port Erin on the Isle of Man for a school holiday. Played on the roof. Had cookery lessons on an upper floor.
When it was knocked down I got one of the brown glazed bricks that lined the stairwells as a souvenir.

Mr. Smeltzer was head teacher while I was there. Mr.Simcox used to take us up to Queens Rec Park to Play football in two trips in his car packed in like sardines. We also used to play cricket on the roof, the wickets where stuck in a wooden block. Very happy days.
