The former Western Road Secondary Modern School, Crookes
The former Western Road Secondary Modern School, Crookes
The school is now Westways. As I remember it, the school had a rectangular hall, which was almost enclosed by the glass and panelled partitions of the classrooms. A small stage stood by the northeast wall. The hall was used for assembly, physical education and school meals. There was a fire exit at each corner and I got the job of painting FIRE EXIT A, B, C & D above each door. The school had four ‘houses’ Bronte, Chantry, Firth and Nightingale. The senior school was on the corner of Western Road and Mona Avenue, the Juniors and Infants was accessed from Mona Avenue. I went to all three, from the years 1945 to 1957, and hated it.
