Loftus Zetland Infants

It is possible to just make out Loftus Zetland Infants III on the small board held by the child in the middle.  We’re guessing that these are the children in class 3.   Some of the children are holding small toys.  We don’t know when this photograph was taken but it must have been about a hundred years ago.  Unfortunately some of the children’s features have faded with time.

The old school is now a private house, opposite the Co-op Building, the Archive wondered it close when Harry Dack opened?

Thanks to Mrs. Wilson for the following: “This school closed when the new secondary modern school opened in 1963 and the junior schools moved to the old secondary modern building near the police station. My father attended this school as an infant in 1930 but when I attended this school, it was used for first year junior pupils after Harry Dack opened.”

Thanks to G. Rowcliffe for the following: “I have just found your site and find it very interesting. My family has lived in The Old Zetland School since it was renovated by the Savory family in the early eighties. Do you or any person visiting the site have photographs from inside the School when it was in use, I have heard that there were some that were given to staff and some pupils at the time.”
