Last weekend my old school held a grand reunion. Unlike most school reunions, this was not so much a chance to catch up with old classmates but more a last chance to commune with the building. The school’s two old sites, Luker and Wormestall, are being turned into apartments (as is the trend in the UK with many lovely old school buildings) and a new establishment fit for the 21st century is in the process of being constructed.
Seeing those classrooms and corridors, that mish-mash of architectural styles and those colours and textures again was truly an incredible experience. I hope you don’t mind me sharing some of my memories.
