Closed Schools

Over the years, a number of schools have closed in Amersham. At one time, Amersham had a number of private education establishments, many of which were very small. Most of these have now closed.

Raans School.

Opened in the 1950s as a mixed school, then a boys school following the opening of Brudenell school for girls, the school closed in the 1980s with the boys being transferred to Brudenell which was renamed The Amersham School.



For more details about Raangs, see the Raans School page

Amersham College / Becketts 
Derek Taylor remembers Amersham College, a private co-ed school located approximately 150 yards from the junction with Green Lane on Woodside Road going towards Black Horse Bridge. It had about 100 students attended and the grounds went back to Mitchell Walk. Believed to have existed from the 1930s to the 1960s.

In the 1960s it turned into beckets.

Pete Wood remembers "When my Dad was called up on the 1st of September 1939, we moved to my mother's parents who lived at 47 Woodside Road (later re-numbered to 115). My mother thought that only the "rough" kids attended Blackhorse Bride School so I was enrolled at Amersham College. Mr. and Mrs. Holland ran the school and the 5 to 10 year olds were taught in a wooden hut classroom by Mrs. Holland, a rather bucksome but very loving North Country lady. I remember a cold Winter's day when the pipes had frozen so that we could not use the school toilets and the classroom was so cold that Mrs. Holland rubbed our hands to warm them enough that we could write our lessons. The playing field was a rough area that extended as far as Mitchell Walk, before that street was paved and houses were built." Gill Bilski adds "it was open until the mid? 60s. It was a boys' secondary school at that stage I think and was run by Mr. Gabb of Clifton Road. I vaguely remember boys wearing a black uniform. I would have been roughly 102-108 Woodside Road. I can't remember the building(s) at all though. After it closed in Woodside Road (they sold the land for houses), it moved to Little Hampden ... I think down the track beyond the Rising Sun. I think it closed in the 1980s."

Brian J. Dooley remembers "Went there in the late '60s, and it was called, impressively, "Amersham College of St. Thomas a Beckett." The colours were black, purple and white. I still have the tie, and I think my sister has the old cap. I was only there about two years. Classes were in a prefabricated block, and there was an out building that served as a library, and I think another one that served as a hall, and also had a toilet block. One could trumpet a most outrageous moaning sound into the abandoned plumbing through an external pipe. The school was run by Mr. Gabb; Mr. Sheffield was Science and Maths, I believe; Mr. Gantley was Proctor of Discipline, and therfore responsible for the caning. There was a "fives" court built at one point, which got plent of high velocity use. The prefabrication was such that when Jeremy (Stick) threw his father's bayonet into the wall it collapsed into the next classroom."
