Reference Name SR/252

Records of the South Secondary School, Gainsborough, and predecessor schools. Lea Road Council School was opened on 3 May 1906, replacing the Bridge Road [SR/232] and Hickman Street Schools. There were initially separate Departments for Boys, Girls and Infants. In August 1930 the school was re-organised with Departments for Infants, Junior Girls and Senior Girls (Junior Boys and Senior Boys were transferred to the new Sandsfield Lane Council School, known as Benjamin Adlard School by 1932) [SR/230]. The school became Gainsborough Lea Road County Primary School and Gainsborough Lea Road Secondary Modern School for girls c.1945. These were re-named as Gainsborough South Secondary School and Gainsborough South County School in 1956. The South Secondary School was closed on 16 December 1965, as part of a re-organisation of Gainsborough secondary schools, with the staff and pupils transferred to Gainsborough Middlefield Lane Secondary School. In 1993, the Gainsborough South County Infant School was merged with the Gainsborough Benjamin Adlard County Junior School, on the latter site, to form the Gainsborough Benjamin Adlard County Primary School.
