St Andrew's Church of England School, Hadfield.


The Post Office Directory of Derbyshire, 1876, identifies St Andrew's as a mixed National school of which Alfred Walker was master and Mrs Walker was mistress.
Kelly's Directory of Derbyshire, 1895, says that the National (mixed) school at Hadfield was erected 1835, for 550 children. The average attendance was 334 and Alfred Walker was master.

Hadfield St Andrew's building The original school building was on Railway Street, as shown by the photo on the left. By the time this photo was taken the building was being used by the private Kingsmoor School.

Following the amalgamation of Glossop Grammar School, West End School and Castle School to form Glossop Comprehensive School in 1965, St Andrew's moved to the former Castle School buildings. St Andrew's had already been using temporary classrooms on Castle School fields for some years to house the Standard 4 classes. The photo on the right shows Castle School in 1908, just after it had been built as Hadfield Council School.
