2 - 4 weeks availability
This fascinating collection of over 200 images of Lockleaze and Romney Avenue Schools has been compiled using photographs from the archives of the local schools and from former Lockleaze residents' personal collections. The illustrations in this book are drawn from a fund of largely unpublished archive material providing a photographic record of the schools from their post-war origins to school reunions in the 1990s. The pictures include class photos, sports events, staff and pupils with each image being accompanied by an informative caption. Charting the progress of these popular local schools, this informative book will not only appeal to those who have attended the schools but also to those interested in the development of English primary and secondary education over the second half of the twentieth century. In recording in some detail the daily life of the schools it should prove of interest to other schools, as well as being a historical reference for future generations.
AN HADDRELL lives in Frampton Cotterell and is a member of the Local History Group. A former pupil of Lockleaze School, he has access to the archives and has researched the subject well. He also organises school reunion events. Ian was the co-author of 978-07524-4411-6 Frampton Cotterell and Coalpit Heath (2007).
