Stone marks end of an era for Thorncliffe School

STUDENTS have produced a commemorative stone to mark the history and closure of their school.
Have your say
My mistake sorry, you are of course correct. We merged with the Tech a little later.
Actually it was Holker street who joined with Victoria in 1973 not the Tech.
In 1974 I started at Victoria School, which changed it's name to Thorncliffe School in 1975 - when we joined forces with the Technical School across the road.
Why then does the commemorative stone date it from 1979, the year I left ? The school was highly regarded with brilliant teachers who had a really good relationship with the pupils.
I enjoyed my time there, as did many of my school friends; who I am still in touch with even though I've been living in Holland for 10 yrs.
