SZ0795 : East Howe: Kingsleigh Primary School

taken 3 years ago, near to Kinson, Bournemouth, Great Britain

East Howe: Kingsleigh Primary School
East Howe: Kingsleigh Primary School
Hadow Road provides education right through from nursery to sixth form, with The Bourne Academy (secondary school) behind us, and Kingsleigh Primary School here, including pre-school.

Originally this was Kingsleigh Junior, with Kingsleigh First next to the secondary school, then called Kingsleigh Secondary. The first school site was demolished around the time that it merged with the juniors to form an all-through primary school, in the early 2000s.

Kingsleigh Primary has undergone vast expansion in the last few years, increasing its intake to 120 (four classes) as part of the provision of extra school places - thanks to a large birth-rate increase across Bournemouth. Part of the new-build is seen in the left-hand half of the picture.

The youth centre, just across Kinson Road a few hundred yards from here, is dated 1911 in the gable and was the original East Howe School, the predecessor of the Kingsleighs.
