So I had been told about this little school up north a while back and recently had the pleasure of visiting it.

Split in to 2 sections, one for the girls and one for the boys with a great big wall down the middle I can only assume that being a schoolchild here and meeting a child of the opposite sex was like being like a kid in a sweetshop. It was infact an Infants school so probably didn't have my mindset :D

Access was pretty easy, made our way in to the Girls side first and was a good job we were with it as there were no floors, we initially thought we were too late. We clambered over beams and made our way upstairs to have a look about, a few little bits to see but not much really. Conversion had begun.

Came back down, went to the boys section again access was relatively easy, having a wander about and was pleasantly surprised.

Whilst the girls side was in the state it was, this side was aside from other urbexers and vandals not too bad. Lots to see so out came the camera!

The reason I called it Pigeon Street School is because I have literally never seen so much Pigeon shit in my life! This was no longer a resting place, it was a bloody hotel for the feathered rats!! Everywhere I leant, everything I touched it was Pigeon! I was covered in the shit, literally! But, Pigeons aside it was a good explore and there was lots to see. I have since been told it is undergoing complete restoration so relatively lucky with timing.

Sorry if it's a bit pic heavy!

This room, well I absolutely loved it! The decay, the colours, the single chair. I must have spent a good 20 minutes alone in this room.

I am pleased to say that I can read and know what these things are. A brief visit back to education taught me well.

One of the corridors, lovely circular skylights beaming light in and on the floor is the toilet for pigeons!

Always love seeing this place, seem to remember access was a bit of a lottery a while back so glad you found it accessible. Those old classrooms are fantastic (y)

I had only seen it a few times prior to visiting but it didn't disappoint. :D
