It’s the end of an era for a Denby Dale school.
The building, owned by Kirklees Council, has been a school for 140 years.
It housed the village school until 1976, was empty for two years and became a nursery school two years later.
The nursery will move to prefabs on the Gilthwaites Lane campus following a merger with Gilthwaites First School.
To mark the building’s closure the school’s PTA holds a Christmas Fair at the nursery on December 6 (12-3pm).
The event includes Christmas stalls, games and a visit from Santa as well as an exhibition of the school building’s history with class photos dating back to 1898.
And the school is appealing for past pupils and parents to bring old photos of the school for a permanent collection of the building over the years.
Head teacher Jackie Wood said: “It will be a sad day when we leave the building.
“On December 6 we’d like to invite past pupils and staff, as well as current parents and pupils of both schools, to attend the event, say goodbye to the old building and raise funds for the new school.
“Please come to the fair and share your memories and school photos with us.
“If you have photos of the old school from before 1976, or of the nursery since then, we’d love you to bring these along too.”
