King Ina Academy formerly Monteclefe Junior School

If you continue past the Red Lion, and follow the road around to the left you come to Kirkham Street. There is a lane immediately on the right, Kirkham Lane, which leads down to Monteclefe Junior School which changed its name to King Ina Academy in 2016

The school has existed since 1851, first as a mixed school, then after a couple of years turning into a girls’ school. This was the case up until 1965, when the school reverted to a mixed school by combining with the Boys Grammar School to be a mixed school.

The school began as a single 60′ by 20′ room, which was partitioned in 1871. Since then the school has grown in size, with new rooms being added over the years and the amount of pupils steadily growing.

If you walk back up Kirkham Lane and turn right, you will soon come to the police station. Following the road to the right, you come to Tithe Barn.
