Sir William Turners 6th Form / Redcar and Cleveland College, Redcar Lane

Geotag Icon Show on map

Not a building with any aesthetic beauty or history, but a lot of locals including myself passed through.

The Sir William Turners 6th Form was built around 1975 when the Sir William Turner’s School for boys and the Cleveland Grammar School for girls merged. Via further merger it became part of Redcar & Cleveland College in 1994.

These photos were taken during the auctioning off of the buildings fixtures and fittings in late 2008 before it was demolished in early 2009 to make for housing (that was never built due to the global financial meltdown)

A couple of interesting items that were in the building but I don’t recall being for sale were the college shield and foundation stone from the original Coatham Road Sir William Turners School. I’m not sure what became of them

  1. The ceramic crest (lower picture) is in storage at Sir Wm Turner’s Almshouses, pending possible re-use on their site.

    The foundation stone stands outside the main entrance of Redcar & Cleveland College which houses the SWT Learning & Resource Centre (Library!) and the SWT Lecture Theatre – both funded from the proceeds of the sale of the former 6th Form College site. The name lives on!
