Last Days of the former St John’s


The ground floor windows are out, the ground floor is completely stripped of wood, metal, pipes and wires and the upper floor is well on the way to being ready for the big machines to do their best.  The gym/hall came down in two minutes a couple of weeks ago,  The shell remains surrounded by clear hints of the park to come – mounds of soil moved from further west on the site to enable the park work to proceed.

A building that is 90 years old accumulates history and passion but already the school has grown into its new home and thrives in its new building – new cherry trees in last week.

The old building has done its job and the earth has moved on.
