“Conisbrough High” Cramped for Space.
In view of its rapid rate of expansion, Conisbrough Northcliffe High School may soon be in need of more classroom space.
On Monday, the headmaster, Mr A. G. G. Young, told the governors, “it seems an appropriate time to point out just how come we are in these quarters. We are approaching the stage went to expand further and give opportunities to these children will be nearly impossible because of lack of quarters.
The assembly Hall was so small that it could only comfortably accommodate one quarter of the school at any one time.”
Cllr T Hill assured Mr Young that efforts were being made to get the best facilities possible, and he suggested that the headmaster to set down the difficulties and requirements for circulation to members who sat on the Divisional Education Executive. They would then be able to state their case in detail.
The High School came into being at the beginning of the autumn term, with the amalgamation of the boys and girls secondary schools, bringing the number of pupils housed in the 35-year-old building to almost 1000.
