Crossley Heath School, Halifax

Crossley Heath School is just 2 pictures I took on News Years Day whilst passing the building heading for Scarr Woods. They were taken using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera and 2 black and white copies can be seen here or on Flickr, colour version's are exclusive to Clickasnap via the links below.

Opened in 1864 as the Crossley Orphanage at a cost of £65000 (Approx. 5.7 million now) by brothers John, Joseph and Francis Crossley, it was built as a home to 400 children. In 1887 Thomas Porter donated £50000 and the names was changed to the Crossley & Porter Orphan Home and School.

In 1919 Royal Assent was granted and the orphanage became a secondary school, admitting day pupils for the first time and the school came under control of the local authority in 1944. In 1985 the name was changed again after the school merged with the nearby Heath Grammar School to become the Crossley Heath School.
