Hi anyone got any information on Beighton School, which was around in the 1960's?

Is that Reignhead, built in 1989, or Brookhouse, built probably more than 100 years prior?

I’m guessing Brookhouse, as in the 60’s, Reignhead was farmland.....

Beaver Hill School was actually at Ballifield / Handsworth, rather than Beighton and I’m proud to be one of the alumni... :)

Beaver Hill had a wide catchment, from Attercliffe, all the way to Todwick, West end of Woodhouse, out to Catcliffe and Manor. Not sure why, given there were plenty of other feeder schools for these areas, but I remember many school friends travelling in daily....

Thanks for that, have you any photos from the 1950 's onwards please?

When did you attend the school?
