Clint Road School Girls Infants Dept Class 1

This Board School was on the corner of Clint Rd and Solon St.  It opened in 1879; closed just before the Centenary, in 1976. Within the first ten years, attendance had soared to over 1,000.  By the 1890s average attendance was over 1,200.

Pete sent me this lovely photo (left) dated about 1910.  This photo is again like a standard postcard on the back and is un-dated. We believe that Doris Evelyn JONES is front row thrid from right.

 Fabulous photos from the late 1910s and early 1920s were provided by Ron JOHNSON, whose Mum Florence Mary MACHIN attended the school.

Another pupil was Norman BRIDGE, whose mother taught there in the late 1910s. Head at the time was Mr CLARKE.  The school ran special coaching groups for the scholarship, which was taken at Oulton Secondary School in Clarence St.  Norman passed the scholarship, and won the reading prize as well!  Norman went on to the Liverpool Institute.

Kay WILLIAMS (1930s & ’40s) sent these photos. Sadly, Mabel LEE and Margaret BANKS from Kay’s photos were killed when a land mine fell on Ernest Brown Tech.

 The school closed in 1976 when it amalgamated with Edge Hill Infants to form the new Kensington Primary School. At that time the Headteachers were Mrs J M MURPHY (Juniors - went to Kensington) and Miss M NEAL (Infants). The building was demolished after closure, but Val GARNER (a pupil in the 1960s) sent these photos (left and above)
