Southcliffe School, Filey. Any info please?
« on: Wednesday 14 August 13 11:03 BST (UK) »
An uncle attended this school pre-1914.  Is there anyone with local knowledge who could tell me if it survives (from Googling I suspect not) or when it closed?

Many thanks
Ainslie

Many thanks for the links.  I spent ages going through the first site which was full of diverting information and fine photos, but with no reference to the school that I could find.
I have emailed the museum in case they can help.

I believe the school,was founded in 1896 by Joseph Herbert Daniel,where he reamined until the end of the First World War.

Can't see any newspaper announcements of term dates after September 1932. The Rev A H Gaskell was headmaster from 1920 to 1933.

Gaskell registered title to the property in October 1933 - presumably in contemplation of sale.

I will now know where to look if ever in Filey!  Thanks again,
ADDED:  I have Googled the name of J.H. Daniel which produced an obituary.  He was an old boy of St Peter's, York, and so was my grandfather.  This almost certainly explains why my uncle was sent to a school in Filey.
