Schools in Weston super Mare
published by youngfear on Tue, 31/03/2020 - 15:48

I am researching my father's family tree (surname FEAR)... 

My father was Alan George FEAR 6/5/1934 (WsM)- 22/4/1999 (Hartlepool).

His parents were Frederick Clarence FEAR 1900-1957 and Dorothy Ellen STONE 1902-1976

I am interested in finding out which schools my father might have attended. The family lived in Southend Rd, WsM in 1939, according to the England & Wales register for that period.

Any help or advice would be most appreciated.

As your FEAR family were living in Southend Road there are a several possible schools.  Southend Road would have been in the parish of Uphill and so Uphill C of E Primary School might have been used or the Primary School in Carlton Road - part of the Walliscote Rd School.  Later, for secondary education they might have attended Walliscote Boys' School or Locking Road Girls' School.  There was also the County School in Broadoak Road which later became the Weston Grammar School.   

Perhaps someone who went to school in Weston can correct me on this one!

The picture is of Walliscote Primary School.
