1957 – ‘HINGED’ FRAME FOR NEW BINLEY SCHOOL

Work on a new Coventry comprehensive school, at Binley, near Binley Mixed School, is planned to start in March, next year.
It will be a “co-ed” school, where girls can learn homecraft subjects in specialist blocks, and the boys can study heavy crafts in a workshop…..

So ran the story in the Coventry Evening Telegraph, on October 24th 1957. Seems rather sexist nowadays, but such were the times!
