More about this scene

This view shows the newly built school on a vast site between Glastonbury Road and Farmstead Road. When it became a comprehensive, its name was changed to Beanfield School; it flourished until 1999, whereupon it was closed and subsequently merged with Queen Elizabeth School in the town centre to form Corby Community College. The buildings were demolished in 2002.
