QV 2007

Built in 1897 and extended in 1903, QV school catered for Junior pupils. From the end of the war until 1951, it also housed the pupils of Chirton School which was demolished by a landmine.
In 1981 it became a training centre until it was finally demolished and the site became Laurel Heights

These reliefs and ironwork chart the history of the school through the reigns of Queen Victoria and King Edward VII
