I do know that Ionic street school is still there since I checked it out online. Lovely to see pics and it looks just the same. Alpha Drive was built much later but I don't think it exists now. Does anyone know why? I attended Ionic street from seven to eleven years old starting 1934 and then to Alpha Drive. I still correspond with a couple of my school friends.

I went to the Kirklands (the Kirks) as a 16 year old school leaver in about 1983 to do a yts course in construction, spent most of my time in the kitchen with the girls, I remember they had a car mechanics course downstairs,

Thanks for the info. Baby boom makes sense. It was very 'modern' when it was constructed with showers and change rooms for gym. A central quad separated the boys school area from the girls. And an open air quad in the girls section had the main and second floors running round it. I guess it was still the same in later years.?
