Downs Infants School & Millwards Junior Mix School

Christine Martindale.

The Downs Infants, age group 5-7 yrs. & Millwards JM School, age group 7-11 yrs.  opened in the early 1960s in Woods Avenue.  At this time there was an increasing number of children coming with their families to live in the expanding Hatfield New Town.

Both schools closed on 31 August 1992, becoming Stream Woods Junior Mixed, Infant & Nursery School which in turn became Oak View Primary and Nursery School

Do you have memories and photos of these schools?

  • I was at Downs Infants school and then onto Millwards until 1969. My last years teacher was Mrs Muscroft who also organised a play in that year, called I think, Huckleberry Finn. I also went on a weeks trip to Swannage, which was very enjoyable. If anyone has any photo’s and would be willing to share, that would be fantastic.
