Records of St. Faith's CE Infant School, Lincoln. The parish of Lincoln St. Mary le Wigford purchased land in West Parade in August 1873 and built Infants' and Upper Schools, which opened as National Schools in January 1876. The Upper School became a Girls' School in 1878, with older boys sent to other schools until a separate Boys' School was opened in January 1890. The Boys' School was known as St. Faith's Central School Boys' Department from September 1923. In 1931 boys over the age of 11 were transferred to the new Rosemary Boys' School, and the Boys' School became St. Faith's Junior Boys' School. At the same time girls over 11 were transferred to other schools and the Girls' School became a Junior Girls' School. The two Junior Schools were re-organised as a Junior Mixed Department in 1935. The Junior School became a Controlled School in 1949, as did the Infants' School in 1950. In September 1971 the Infants' School became a First School for 5-8 year olds, taking up the whole of the West Parade Premises, and the Junior School became a Middle School for 8-12 year olds, based in the former Rosemary Boys' Secondary School building in Hampton Street [now St. Faith and St. Martin CE Junior School]. The First School moved to a new site at West Parade in September 1974, and was later re-organised as an Infant School [after 1982].
