I hear that Colley School is about to be demolished and I was wondering if anyone knew when Colley ceased to be a comprehensive school? What happened to all the kids there? What became of all the teachers when it changed to a college?

I was there in the 60's and have fond memories.

I went to Colley in the early 80s,I think it stopped being a comp in the latter end.
I left in 83 and it was still going strong,not sure about knocking it down,I live nearby and as far as im aware its still going strong

Hi, as a former Colley school pupil myself I'm rather sad with the latest developments. My eldest child would have been ready to move up in to Colley but instead went to Yewlands - this was around 88-89 (I need to check the dates I'm getting rather old myself now). Anyway since those first changes Colley became known as the Parson Cross site of the Sheffield college and the old St Peter's catholic school became known as the Monteney site of the Sheff college. Come 2005 the school is destined to be demolished to make way for private housing, as is the old catholic school. The old age pensioners flats have already been demolished and the cul-de-sac area of those flats just behind the new Wordsworth Tavern is the area earmarked for the building of a new community centre. As far as I know this new building will include all the printing workshops that now operate in the Monteney site (St Petes) and a library/garden centre/tea room.
The library will be demolished so as to extend the co op on Margetson shops. Sad isn't it? That's why I'm joining Sandy's group working to research and document all these changes and hopefully all that went before.

I lived at Holgate Road Parson's Cross born there in 1954 what a cold winter that was at number 32 my fathers sister Lilly lived at 34 Holgate Road. I'm a Taylor Lilly was a Roberts and lived there many years she worked for Bassets most of her working life. There was prefabs at the bottom of our road and some of my family lived there too at that time there was no bus service and i remember the first bus sign to be put up. My father worked on the trams for years and my uncle Jack lived on the top road but died young. We use to slide down the slopes on carboard boxes for fun then and walked miles to go helping ourselfs to apples out the fields. We were the first to have a phone and had many come to use it when they needed i do have family still live at parsons cross but not seen them in years. There was plenty of fields to walk then and parsons cross was lovely to live there and up near the shops my mums family the booths lived not been in touch since i was 10. For a while we lived so many houses up the road but moved futher down to be near Aunty Lilly both familys were large there was 6 of us and Lilly had 7 children in the end. Lilly was a lot older than dad so someone might remember her sons...Glynn...Terry...Stephen...David...Ivor...Ju ne and Gillian Roberts. Anyway its getting late and i have lived near Peterborough for about 40 years and never went back to sheffield but have really good memories of Parsons Cross.

I probably know your family. We lived on Holgate Cres from 1958. In those days you knew everyone around. I remember you used to have to go up onto Wordsworth Ave to catch the bus. The first bus I'm sure was the 110 which turned around at Colley Cres - think it only went as far as Adlington Cres at first. It then changed to the number 10 then to the 79/89.

Hi Kate,

When i lived in Holgate Road our family caused a bit of a stir we was in the daily papers has we were neglected and the police were looking for my mother she walked out one Saturday morning in 1959 and left 6 children ages 1..2..3..4...6...9 took a couple of years to find her. I went to the pre school and took my younger brother who was only 3 can you imagine young children doing that now my mother should have took us but i gather she stayed in bed and we was fed at the pre school. My sister Helen still lives in Sheffield she was on the manor for about 34 years and Jimmy lives in Birmingham my younger brother Richard moved to my village my. I have a brother Paul in lives in Boston my brother Micheal moved to Peterborough after living on norfolk park but died at 36. We all was taken to the childrens homes at Scholes near Holmfirth in the west ridings lots of ups and downs and we never really speak to each other sad really but i do miss sheffield at times. Castle market was still there last time i was there so its a long time ago and i know there as been a lot of devolopement and we did years later live at Stepney Buildings Duke street in the late 60,s. Gas place was right in our front you could smell fumes and if i'm right Thursdays was the night you could smell the hops every where. Then there was cadburys at the dwaf pickled onions and the old rope factory but that got burned down one night burned so fast . Well there is a daul carriage way there now i believe and i never did like Hyde Park i was there when the queen mother opened it but i was always scared to walk along the passage ways when my father moved there later.

John married Joyce Wells in about 1972, they're still together and have two sons and grandchildren. Not sure if Joyce is related to Alan Verneze. John and our Robert are still best mates as they were when they were children.

I left Colley School at Easter 1961 and went to work as an apprentice at Sanderson Bros & Newbould in Attercliffe. I lived in Holgate Road from 1948 until 1968, first at No. 102 then at No. 84. I and my family have lived in South Africa since April 1975, with brief visits back to England to see family. If anyone remembers me or my Sister Barbara please post a reply.

I was at Colley Road School till 1955 (a very long time ago!) but having just read about a Mr Birch I am sure that he was the headteacher when I was there. Also, I think Mr. Ibbotson was the choir teacher (it was good to be in the choir - quite a lot of lessons missed because of choir practice). Is there anyone else who was at Colley School before 1955?

I remember feeling sorry for him during lessons as he was given a hard time by some of the class epecially those sitting at the back, he was always red faced trying to control them and we never got round to learning anything as time ran out. I can even remember fights breaking out with him and some sent to Mr Birch but nothing was ever solved.

I'm sure the sheep were introduced by Mr Mason in the early 60's, and didn't think they were there in '55. Mr Mason also started? a gardening class. I started at Colly in 1959, the 2 maths teachers at that time were Mr Burgin and Mr Frank Brightmore, Percy to his friends. I recollect that he had been in the RAF during the war, possibly as a navigator.

When I was at Colley, I left in '55, I think is was a Mr. Brightmore, I could be wrong.

Frank Brightmore Was a navigator in a DH Mosquito During the war. Does anyone remember his contemporaries, Miss Hudson (English), Mr Thompson (English) ,Mr Weatherall (French)and Mr Wilton (Lord Knows What).

I was @ Colley until 55. Mr Birch ,the head. Ibbo.Mr. Wright. Mr Mellor Miss Hardy(?) So you are not on your own. Any body else out there from this era?

Hi - I left Colley School in 1955. I do remember Mr Ibbotson who also took the choir. A great way to get out of lessons! I lived on Holgate Crescent till I married in 1962. I do remember a few names from my class, Myra Luscombe, Kenneth Smith, Douglas Ball, Valerie Moorhouse.

I also remember Mr Wetherall (French), Mr Holding (English) Mr Shaw (Art), but also remember Mr Jackson, (Geography). I think Mr Jackson had been a POW of the Japanese, but could be wrong. He was very uptight and nervous, but the bullying he took from certain pupils didn't help him. I wish I had the bottle then to help him.

We came to live on Parson Cross in 1949 and I went to Monteney infants then to Monteney juniors then on to Colley 1957 leaving in 1961 and have many happy memories of those days, of course there have been many changes in Parson Cross and in Ecclesfield since then although I believe it's still a good place to live. It's always nice to meet old friends or just to discuss those happy days at the old schools when life moved at a much slower pace.

I left Colley School at Easter 1961 and went to work as an apprentice at Sanderson Bros & Newbould in Attercliffe. I lived in Holgate Road from 1948 until 1968, first at No. 102 then at No. 84. I and my family have lived in South Africa since April 1975, with brief visits back to England to see family. If anyone remembers me or my Sister Barbara please post a reply.

Marcia, I'm sure I knew you, did you live on Rokeby Road/Drive and go to St Pauls church? I also knew Julie Simpson, who also lived on the same road. You two were my closest friends when I was at Monteny Junior. I went to Colley Comp, and left in 1973 early, I should have left in 1974. I was Diane Elliott back then.

Hi Joto, thanks for the welcome.
Yes my sister is Gloria: she is now 73 and in good health.
Sorry but I am having trouble with "the corner house with the garage".
Some of the names I remember from the other side of our road are:
South, Pegg, Czechgaret(approximately), Lindley, then on the Drive were brother and sister Val and Bruce then Atkins who had a garage which I rented from them in the late fifties.(Let me know if I am getting warm)
I can name most of the people from the other side of the road if you ever need to know.

We adjoined Atkin's, only they were on the drive. Then came Ellis's, Jackson's, Leach's, then another Atkin's. My sister Muriel was the same age as Gloria but sadly she died from cancer just after her 70th birthday. All I remember about you is you were in the army, and did you ride a motorbike?

I lived at Holgate Road Parson's Cross born there in 1954 what a cold winter that was at number 32 my fathers sister Lilly lived at 34 Holgate Road. I'm a Taylor Lilly was a Roberts and lived there many years she worked for Bassets most of her working life. There was prefabs at the bottom of our road and some of my family lived there too at that time there was no bus service and i remember the first bus sign to be put up. My father worked on the trams for years and my uncle Jack lived on the top road but died young. We use to slide down the slopes on carboard boxes for fun then and walked miles to go helping ourselfs to apples out the fields. We were the first to have a phone and had many come to use it when they needed i do have family still live at parsons cross but not seen them in years. There was plenty of fields to walk then and parsons cross was lovely to live there and up near the shops my mums family the booths lived not been in touch since i was 10. For a while we lived so many houses up the road but moved futher down to be near Aunty Lilly both familys were large there was 6 of us and Lilly had 7 children in the end. Lilly was a lot older than dad so someone might remember her sons...Glynn...Terry...Stephen...David...Ivor...Ju ne and Gillian Roberts. Anyway its getting late and i have lived near Peterborough for about 40 years and never went back to sheffield but have really good memories of Parsons Cross.

You would have lived next door to the Woodhouse's I think. I lived opposite them at 21 Holgate Road born in 51 and remember Glynn Terry & June Roberts. Around us on the road were Callaghans, Barkers, McCleans, Stanborough's, Gibsons, Morton's, Haywood's, Onions, Horner etc. Good days. We used to go on the fields behind you between Deerlands Avenue for fun, and yes scrumping apples way down the other end of Holgate Road.

I was at Colley Road School till 1955 (a very long time ago!) but having just read about a Mr Birch I am sure that he was the headteacher when I was there. Also, I think Mr. Ibbotson was the choir teacher (it was good to be in the choir - quite a lot of lessons missed because of choir practice). Is there anyone else who was at Colley School before 1955?

I was at Colley from 1950 to 1952, having previously been at Lound. I then went to Barnsley Tech. I remember Mr. Birch, headmaster, Mr. Shaw, deputy head (he was the first person I had ever met who was ambidextrous) He was in charge of the school trip, by train, to London to see the Festival of Britain in 1951. Mr. Ibbotson taught music, Mr. Ollerearnshaw, science, Mr. Thomoson, football, Mr. Mellor, maths. I can't remember all the others but I remember my form teacher, who was the girl's gym teacher and was always in just skin tight leggings and a skin tight top. I don't know why I would remember her.

Hi Joto,
I went to Colley because Yew Lane wasn't open at that time, so I presume that you are younger than me. Gloria, who is two years younger than me, and Christine, my sister who is 8 years younger than me,both went to Yew Lane.
I have remembered that the brother and sister who lived at the other side of the Atkins, were called Scott, their mother was Mary.
I don't remember anyone beyond your house except Derek Crapper, and the fact that we had a policeman living a little further on.

Sorry to shatter your recollections, but I never did go in the army; because I was still studying, I was deferred from doing National Service, which was abolished before I finished my studies. I never had a motorbike either.

Amazing to see how this thread has gone over the years. I started it so long ago that I had totally forgotten about it and just today stumbled upon the thing. Nice to see so many happy recollections of the place and that people have reconnected. I finally tracked down some old friends too, Lynne Eames, who,lives on the Isle of Wight, Barbara Cotton who lives inWales and Jean Percival who still lives In Sheffield. They were my best friends through school. The only one I have not been able to track is Maxine Betts, if anyone knows her (that's her maiden name and she lived on Monteney Road and had a brother called Paul). Would love to hear from her too. We had some great times at Colley and I have many happy (and not so happy) memories. Kath

Crossowl if you are referring to me being brighter than you I can't be that good or your identity would spring to mind, plus the only people I knew that could run fast were running from PC Plod ! If you said Ginger and couldn't run I would guess Alan Ashmore, or Alan Radford but neither had popcorn machines ( scooters) ha ha :confused::huh:
Ps are you staying secret because you owe me a pint from when we went in the Wordsworth Tavern ?

Hi Kate, I saw Alan Vanezzi last year in Hillsborough but he was and still is a lot taller than me. Oh yes Tony Camm, how is he is and he still watching the Blades? Pete might remember my Green and Gold Lambretta LI 150 Scooter with loads of mirrors and backrest/headrest. I sometimes knocked about with Pete Callinswood who had a Vespa Sportique Scooter. I was in form 4/2 in my final year at school.( Pete was brighter than me)!!
Any nearer?:|

Our Tony is fine, still a blade & always going fishing.
Pete Callinswood was in my class along with Pete, 41A, the bright ones!! Or maybe just bluffed our way through!
You've really got me now....Alan Stacey maybe?

Looks as though there are quite a few people who have contributed to this thread who lived near to the Wordsworth tavern so I thought I'd ask a question. Does anyone remember a guy possibly part chinese called Eddie and what became of him, I'm just being curious as I knew him and the Atkin sisters one of which was his girlfriend for a time

The Atkin sisters that I knew were Julie the eldest and Marie the youngest with one in the middle Vivian I think, Eddie rode a motorcycle and nearly always had a dark blue motorcycle leather on
