  • Question.   Would like to know when the convent road school closed.

    I lived in convent road for forty years in a house named aspatria.

    I recently returned and the convent has become a youth club.

    thank you   George smith

  • Probably when they opened St Joseph’s school behind the Convent, George. The old convent is not a youth club but I understand it is like a respite centre for youngsters from all over the place. Unless it has changed again.

  • Hi,
    I’m looking for any information regarding the school. Did you attend between 1980-1987?
    When did it open/close?
    Can anyone remember the nuns? Does Sister Annunciata ring any bells?

  • I attended the school in this time but we moved to Kent in 1987 I was only 7 then but i do remember Sister Annunciata my mum liked her the best. We used to live on Lionel Road opposite the convent. I remember Sister Assumpta sorry about the spelling and Sister Veronica was head teacher from memory.
    Does that jog any memories?
