old sneinton schools, greenwood, sneinton boulevard, sneinton trust,


Recommended Posts

Lupo, there have ben a lot of changes in the school system in that part of Nottingham.

St Bernadettes closed in the early 1980s. Greenwood Bilateral became a Comprehensive in 1972 and opens as The Nottingham Academy later this week. Sneinton Boulevard School became Greenwood Junior School and opens as The Windmill Primary School later this week. Edale Girls School became Greenwood Infants School and opens as Edale Rise Primary School later this week. Jesse Boot School has been taken over by The Nottingham Academy and will be demolished to be replaced by a new building on the site of the playing field.

Hi Lupo, my mums family went to school around that area. I believe my mum went to St Bernadettes. I'm not sure of the time frames, but I can find out for you.

Hello Alamo

You are a little older than me but lived in my area,we was the stredders,a bit rough around the edges,but we turned out alright.It seems a lot of people have emigrated who lived in sneinton,such a pity,as all the people from sneinton was good,uns.I still miss sneinton and the people,but unfortunatly,i dont miss England,but all the good times was in sneinton(was they really good times)i have a look round on google earth,and dont recognise the place,when i come over to England,i will have a good look round sneinton,as i said the people,was really good,most of us struggled,but still had time to know everybody.

cheers lupo

Me & my sisters went to St. Bernadette's. I started there in 1971 until my 5th year. But being honest, I missed nearly the last two years. I used to nick off with my sister & go into town or a mates house O_o One place we did go & sit for hours is, on top of the mounts lol

Hi just browsing & spotted Sneinton Blvd. I think I qualify as an 'old boy' having left (aged 14) Xmas 1942. I've posted re. sledging in Top Field & was a Army cadet (Sgt. pti.) @ Jesse Boot school until joining the Royal marines, 2 years national service. I have good memories of the youth club beneath the Methodist church at the botttom of the boulevard. My pal Jack Thompson & I "pumped " the church organ when the motor failed. Taylor Close Beefy? remember the Gascoignes, Reg was engine driver son Barry followed him and we were in the LMR Rifle club together. Thanks for asking Lupo I'm just off for another trip down memory lane. CU Albert Smith

At Last a thread about Greenwood School. I attended Greenwood Bilateral fro 1958 till 1962. Headmaster at the time was Mr Skilbeck a strict disciplinarian always wore a black gown and was always a visible presence around all areas of the school I suspect a lot of todays head teachers could learn a lot from his style its called management by walking about. Other teachers were Joe Morley, Taffy Broom, Mike Graham (played rugby for Nott's RFC as did Phil Barwick ) I remember some very happy days there and lots of good friends from the Sneinton area. I married a local girl from Baden Powell Road we got married at St Christophers on Colwick road. I haven't lived in Nottingham for a large number of years so I don't know if there has ever been a reunion
