Ingrow Infants and Elementary Schools were officially opened on Tuesday 23  rd  April 1901 with the first pupils entering a few weeks later on May 18  th  . It had accommodation for 290 in the Infants School and 480 in the Junior and Senior Schools.

In 1950 the Elementary school changed to a Primary School with the eleven-year-old pupils transferring to Holycroft and the Boys’ and Girls’ Grammar Schools.

Sadly,no Miss Q. I knew Miss Murgatroyd, Mrs Ayers & Mr Parker. Mr Travis had a heart attack mid- year. I was given his class to teach & lost my dear 2E.

I did my probationary teaching year at Ingrow 1966-1967,under Miss Duckney. I taught 2E and remember the class and staff with great affection.

Do you remember a Miss Quigley, also a probationary teacher there at the same time? She taught me in 2G with Mr. Riley?

Sadly, there are few photos of the classes of the mid-1960s. I went to Ingrow in Jan 1963 and left after 3J in the Juniors. Anyone have contact details?

in 1950-53 the Headmistress was Miss Duckney. My brother Tony was always disobeying her. None of the rest of us could believe anyone would dare to do that
