No, I don't believe so.

Derymount Lower is over a mile away in Redhill.


I've been driving up Sherbrook rd and off for over 30yrs, I'm sure the school was boarded up for a while.


On Google maps in 2012 it was Daybrook Learning Centre.


From here, it was Daybrook Learning Centre from 2010, then closed 2014 then reopened as Derrymount,


Looks like it was originally;


St Albans Infant and Nursery, closed 2003.


It looks like there's been a few amalgamations / closures in Bestwood /Daybrook Infant Junior schools over the years

St Alban's is the name I was looking for. Many thanks, you've jogged my memory. My father worked there as caretaker in the '70s and '80s but I couldn't recall the name when asked by my aged uncle.
