Built in 1854, Pott Row School was modernised when it became a first school in 1978 – and when this picture was taken in September, 1984, there were 51 children on the register.
There was a thriving parent-teacher association which ran an annual fete to raise funds for the school. This enabled the purchase of a computer which was proving very popular with the children.
While it was mainly used for mathematics and English, it was also useful to teach the children observation skills and to train their memories said the headteacher, Mr John Martin.
