Welbeck School (formerly Queen's Walk School) The Meadows 1971


Queen's Walk Junior School, The Meadows Nottingham was known in later years as Welbeck School. The original building was demolished in 1971 and replaced with the modern Welbeck School.

The school was on the corner of Kinglake Street and Queen's Walk.

One teacher was Mr Derrick Moore who taught at the school from 1949 to 1966.

Queen's Walk School 1947 -1952 I attended Queen's Walk Junior School from age 5 to age 11 years old. One of my school teachers was named Mr Moore. He must have been in his late twenties so we called him 'Old Man Moore'. One day he asked the class to paint a picture, subject not suggested. I sat pndering what to draw or paint. Mr Moore, after a while he came behind me and said 'What's that, a foggy night in London Town?' On another occasion, again having to do a drawing or colour picture, I drew a scene from a Western film (I loved Red Indians and always wanted them to win in the films we saw, but they never did). One of the Indians was named Cochise, who was a famous Apache, but when 'Old Man Moore' looked over my shoulder and said, 'Who's Chockice?' But he was a brilliant teacher in spite of his ignorance.

I went to Queens Walk from 1947 until 1953 when I moved to Trent Bridge. The head master at Queens Walk was a little guy by the name of Pulfer and two of his staff were Mr. Raven and Miss Costa. I lived in Furlong terrace on Middle Furlong Roadso the walk to school was pretty short

Does anyone know is this was the Queens Walk Girls Board School in 1881?  I have books from my great grandmother who attended that school in 1881 to 1884.

I was here until 1958. I remember Mr Moore, Mr Walker, Mr Ward, Mrs Edwards and Miss Sylvie as well as Mr Pulfer and Mr Howlett. Happy days. One year two boys started to bully me as I walked home up Queen's Walk. This happened a couple of times and I told my mother. The next day Mr Pulfer came into my class, followed by the two boys and my mother, He gave them the strap on their hands and declared that he would not tolerate bullying in his school- problem solved.
