Goodbye Domestic Science & Art


These rooms belonged to the Domestic Science and Art departments  in my day.  Mr. Skelton was my art teacher.  He’s a lovely guy and I met him again a few years ago when I visited one of his art exhibitions and bought a print.  I’m proud to say that I also have an original work by George Skelton, he drew my Dad’s retirement card.  The (half) ground floor classroom was my form room for a while with Mrs Whitehead.  Sadly I have missed the demolition of the hall, it must have come down in a day because earlier in the week it was there, now it’s gone!  See Thorp Academy Page for previous photographs and articles.
