Yes, welcome Gordon. The school that was known as Tile Hill Wood was a girls only school (until relatively recently when it was also renamed) but that was only opened mid-50's. It could be Templars Primary School which was on Tile Hill Lane. I'm sure the original school was pre-war at least, though that was demolished in what I think was the later 80's/early 90's. Pic off the web so apols if owned by someone here.

I’m pretty certain that Dad’s school was all-boys!

It could have been The Junior Technical School that was opened in 1919. Not sure where it was, but all pupils were transferred to Woodlands on its opening in 1954.

Mick,I think you will find that the Junior Technical School was based at the Technical College, Butts. I have a few school magazines somewhere and a school badge which I will dig out plus a few cuttings. Jack Selby tried with some success to form an 'old boys' association about 10 years ago which met monthly for coffee and a chat. Very few will still be alive. Jack died the day before his 100 birthday, bur did have the satisfaction of seeing his birthay card from the Queen.

It was Barclays Bank, Neil! 1946 Telephone Directory lists it as 513 Fletchamstead Highway. Thumbs up

I know it’s an old post, but just for a bit of information, Mr Toogood lived at 159 Duggins Lane, opposite Key Stone (as it was called). His vegetable plot was right next to his house and is now occupied by 2 detached bungalows.
