Clifton Street Schools, Radnor Street
Clifton Street Schools, Radnor Street
Facing the end of Clifton Street, with access from both Radnor Street and William Street, Clifton Street Schools comprised both infant and junior schools. They were opened on this site in stages, over a short period of years commencing in 1884. In 1950 there was considerable enlargement and alterations. Over the central windows is engraved "Clifton Street Schools". On the front boundary wall is a street name sign for Radnor Street. When photographed the schools were still in use. Some years ago they closed and pupils went to the newly built Robert Le Kyng Primary School in nearby Westcott Street.

Today the buildings have another use, as can be seen in the recent photograph of Brian Robert Marshall:- SU1484 : Former Clifton Street Schools, Radnor Street, Swindon. The building externally has not changed much, except that the brick built boundary wall with metal railings, that used to front Radnor Street, has been demolished so as to provide car parking.
