Fantastic picture. Can anyone confirm when the school actually closed? I suspect it was around 1988 - my mother purchased a house on the new McClean & Riversmede development that was built on the site from 1992-94. I heard rumours as a kid that the school was badly damaged in a arson attack and subsequently demolished. Can someone put me straight on this please?
