    Victoria Junior School. The school in the photo had to be demolished around 2000, as there was a pocket of methane gas under it (which despite the measured) couldn't be vented away. Out of the schools I went to, this was my favourite. Excellent teachers who were firm but fair.

      My Senior (Secondary School). Salterbeck Secondary school, which later changed to Southfield Secondary School when we had several school mergers in 1984. The below photo was took shortly before its demolition a couple of years ago.

          I could have sworn that I have seen some pictures of schools which have barbed wire around the fences outside to presumably stop truants and the like from escaping.
          I've everything I need to keep me satisfied
          There's nothing you can do to make me change my mind
          I'm having so much fun
          My lucky number's one
          Ah! Oh! Ah! Oh!

            That is true George mate yeah ... and also to stop Vandalism etc (as my first Secondary did)

            Though it was after 1988 and 88 when I started we had Vandalism every week on Grange Hill's Scale of Window's being smashed as was so in Series 4 (and that was not even London) and 8 years later, so shows you how rough it was!!

              It should be understood that working on the photos after the shoot takes a lot more time than the shoot itself.

                And I bet that as it was a drama, the glass was actually plastic for Health and Safety reasons. The glass in Mitchell's classroom in the "Golightly - let's consult the masterplan" episode of series 2 where Tucker tries to build a tower out of chairs in the room and breaks a window. If you look closely, the window pane looks as if it is made of plastic.
