      I went to this school, in fact one of the first to go through from when it first opened. Any idea when it is due to be pulled down?

      Its not a great shame. My daughter goes here and she like all her fellow students can't wait for this place to be pulled down. Its freezing in the winter, a boiling hot greenhouse in the summer and internally its falling to bits. The sooner it goes the better.

      wouldn't it have been possible to re-furbish rather than demolish...modern double glazing and all that???

      My understanding is that, among other problems, it suffers very badly from solar gain and everything that has been tried to stop it over heating has failed. It’s a massive shame architecturally and in respect to our brutalist architectural heritage, but kids also deserve descent schools that are fit for purpose!
