Burleigh School opened in 1954 relieving pressure off St Audrey’s school for more school places. The building provided a modern, well equipped school that was part of a pioneering Hertfordshire school building programme.
The school had closed by the mid-1970s, the buildings then being used by the Mid Herts Music Centre and part of the playing fields were turned over for housing. The Music Centre eventually moved to a new centre in Birchwood, Hatfield, and the school buildings were demolished to make way for another small housing development.

Did you enjoy going to this school, please add your memories.

  • As I remember it closed as a school in July 1969 and was used as an annex for the college for a few years. I finished the fifth year that year and we had the option of transferring to Onslow or to college if we wanted to go into the sixth form.
