Once seat of learning, now an eyesore

imag0195Buckingham College in Hindes Road suddenly and mysteriously closed last year.
The school moved to this prime location in 1937 with 36 boys on the roll. Before closing, the student population of this private school was mostly Asian.
The independent education provider served pupils well before closing – the secondary school achieved high GCSE results like 79 per cent A* to C grades.
On our enquiry about the future of the site, Harrow council corporate director community Tom McCourt informed that “the site has now been purchased and planning permission has been granted for the redevelopment to provide a three and four storey building for twenty-nine retirement living units”.
