The Beech hedge is still there, though a lot taller, it now forms the boundary that runs along Whitley Crescent and of the houses that were built on the site of the school.
Cyril, you are spot on. I spent my teenage years living in one of the McClean houses that was built on the site of the school. I do actually recall the steel railings used as pedestrian barriers at the former school entrance (these are commonly used to stop pupils spilling out onto the road) were still left in place on Whitley Crescent for a few years after the new estate was built before being removed by the council.
