To me it will always be known as Bramcote Park Comprehensive School, where I attended from 1983 until 1988. Others who attended at other times will maybe know it by different names.
It is sad to see the poor state it has been left in, sad it burnt down and so sad to see several videos on social media of the amount of items left inside.
It’s like someone left locked the door and the place forgotten about. So many items could have been salvaged, donated to and used by others.
I support an organisation which could have sent the items to Schools in Africa. I also know many others as well who could have benefited from the items.
Not sure if I am sad or more angry that having seen old photos dating back to the 1950 just left in the place. I have asked on several occasions if the photos can be retrieved as they are part of our local history. I wanted to put a display on with the photos as many people would love to see them. I have once again emailed the Head asking if that have been saved, if not why not, especially when I made them aware they was in the building having seen pics and videos online.
What memories do you have?
