The school is on Ayr Road Douglas ML11 0QA

Thanks to the staff for permission to photograph the Memorials which are situated in the main entrance hall. The lighting caused some shadows on the pictures.

There are 2 memorials. One is a "Scrap of Paper" which lists all those who went off to serve. The second memorial is a Roll of Honour for those who made the supreme sacrifice.
