Never even heard of it mate.

I've only found this bit of info about it:

Wilfred Owen, the World War I poet attended the school at its original location.[5] A residential road has been named after him on the Tollemache Road site.


is that the place?

Good to hear you went there too, and it was brilliant. I set up a site for anyone who wants to remember it pre-1993, when the school closed down. If you know anyone who is interested, please pass on the info on the site.

I went to the B.I. in 1960 until 1967.It was when it was in Whetstone Lane, and it was a great building. Sadly it was pulled down in the 1970s, and the school closed in 1993 after it moved to Tollemache Road.
