1955 - The part completed school opens for the first time on the 8th September with Miss Lovatt as the first Head Teacher. It was built on the land in Wollaton Park previously used for Allotments during the Second World War. It was not fully completed until Summer 1956 with the Official Opening taking place on the 29th November 1956. The House system was introduced right from the start.
The school had the following houses:
Mellers (Black and White)
The school streamed pupils according to ability with X and Y being the Grammar Stream (X top) and A, B and C being for those that failed the 11 plus. ('A' being highest and there may have also been a 'D' stream at some stage.) It was a precursor to the Comprehensive School.
