Poppleton Road County Primary Schools

Poppleton Road Council School was opened in 1904; there was accommodation for 1,200 children. There were senior mixed, junior mixed, and infants' departments in 1910. By 1936 there were 198 enrolled in the senior mixed, 318 in the junior mixed, and 177 in the infants' departments. The school was severely damaged by enemy action in May 1942: the senior department was then transferred to the Scarcroft Road School and the junior department was accommodated temporarily in other schools until the classrooms were repaired. In 1956 there were 460 children enrolled in the junior school and 210 in the infants' school.
