Kerry Wheatley, who took these fantastic picture of the bulldozers moving, is a former pupil of the school. She said: I went there 1982 till 1987, I loved the school.

“I was there with loads of lovely people, a lot of them I’m still in contact with through Facebook.

“One of my favourite memories has to be eating ‘Pick & Mix’ sweets at the back of the class in Biology eating cola bottles, and having a good time. Simple things, but can’t beat the cola bottle memory.”
