Maud Maxfield School for the Deaf was on Ringinglow Road next to Bents Green School also on Ringinglow Road.
During the 1960's I was at Brincliffe Grammar School at Nether Edge, we had no sports facilities so we were "bussed" (Sheffield Corporation) from Brincliffe to the field behind Maud Maxfield School to use the field for our weekly sports.
The field is still there along with the original changing rooms.
So, Jack Hewitt, you haven't got your wires crossed, Maud Maxfield School was here then demolished, Bents Green School was here and still is, it has been refurbished and an extension built 2011.
There are some photos of both schools on www.picturesheffield.com
