I went to :

Owler Lane Infants 1949 - 1952

Grimesthorpe Juniors 1952-1955

Hucklow Rd Secondary 1955-1956

Hinde House Sec Modern, Sept 1956 ( thats the first day it opened) -1960.

It was quite exciting going to a brand new school in 1956.

Handsworth Infant School 1959 - 1961. Headmistress Miss Meredith. Lovely lady!

Now demolished (the school, not Miss Meredith).

Athelstan Juniors 1961 - 1965. Headmaster Mr. Turner. Nice bloke.

The school is still there, I think.

Hinde House Comprehensive 1965 - 1969. Headmaster Mr. Edwards. There's plenty of info on him on Sheffield Forum.

Hinde House has been demolished and rebuilt since my time.

Went to St Maries on the corner of Edmund Rd ( I think thats where it was), Its been demolished these many years now though. I wonder if any one else remembers it. The headmistress was a nun, Sister Mary Dennis, and there were several other nuns who taught there as well. I wonder if anyone has any pictures (crosses fingers). Well I can always hope!! :):)

Hi Carlie167.

I went to St Maries from 51 to 54.Then on to St Catherines Pitsmoor.After that ,to De La Salle on Scott Rd.Was going to be a priest but all of a sudden found the better things in life, beer and girls.

Hi Carlie67 & PoppyChristina,

A little bit of the history of St Maries for you. My dad went to De La Salle in the 1950s and has some painful memories!

Thanks for the info, Dunsbyowl.We lived on Sheaf Gardens and used to play in "the bombed school yard". Never knew that it was St Maries.

I was there from 54 (I think!!) to 59, then moved to Hackenthorpe and St John Fisher. Thank you Dunsbyowl for the information, I enjoyed reading about the old place, but I didnt know there had been a fire there, sad really :(

I went to De La Salle Scott Road, left in 1972. I believe its a housing estate now. Anyway our football pitch overlooked the cemetry and whenever the ball was kicked over the wall I always volunteered to fetch it cos I could run and jump back to the top of the wall.

Hi to all,

I went to St Charles in Attercliffe then up to De La Salle on Scott Rd in 1953 leaving in 58.

Mixed memories of the place-,some good, some awful-couldn`t wait to leave.

Now demolished and a housing estate I believe.
