St. Philip Howard RC, St. Mary's Road.


Opened September 4th 1961 as Blessed Philip Howard High School to accommodate 260 pupils.
The Official Souvenir Brochure states "After well over a hundred years the three schools of All Saints, St Charles and St Mary's, finished their existence as all-age schools, when their seniors were transferred to the new school on a site adjoining St Mary's Church".
In 1970 the school was re-named St Philip Howard and in 1974 obtained comprehensive status.
