The former Western Road Secondary Modern School, Crookes
The former Western Road Secondary Modern School, Crookes
The main entrance/exit to the school is on Mona Avenue. This was the original entrance/exit, which is on Western Road and faces the houses opposite. There is a fire exit from the building, further down Western Road. When I did my schooling here, back in the ‘40s and ‘50s, there were another two on the opposite side of the building. All led from the hall, which was used for assembly, school meals and P.E.
P.E. was my worst nightmare, but I nearly always got away without doing it. I also ‘escaped’ playing football, except for the once, as ‘they’ quickly realised I had no concept of the game and probably for that same reason, I never ever got to play cricket. When we were all marched off to the playing fields on the Bolehills for cricket and football, I was made to walk or run around the field. ‘They’ never realised my potential for running though, as I could really shift, especially when it was very cold. ‘They’ were obviously too interested in the game, to see me running my little legs off.
The school is now called Westways.
