Demolition of John Ruskin School, Upper Shirley Road, Croydon
These school buildings had a very short life. Newly opened in 1954, they then housed a boys' grammar school. This eventually became co-educational and then part of a sixth form college. But the Council decided it could make more money by tearing down the less than fifty year old buildings and selling the land for housing, so in 1993 they were demolished, as seen here.
