New Cross Schools and Colleges

FamLoc lists New Cross schools and colleges, include info about admission and discharge registers, and include a map link of the schools locations.

All or most of New Cross was once known as Hatcham, and was within the Parish of Deptford.

School and Colleges Admission and Discharge registers are an under-used resource. They give the dates of admission and discharge, date of birth, the school attended prior or subsequently, address of student, guardian, and, if lucky, more personal info such as medical condition. This makes schools and colleges an excellent resource for family historians.

Some schools were names after a nearby main road; please note the school may not actually be in that road. Similarly, the address given directly after the name of the school need not necessarilly be the actual address.
Some schools had a change of name (typically from a street name), or the same school name was used in different locations at different times.

Please refer to the New Cross History and Family History main page for information on LMA and London Borough of Lewisham local history centre information.

Canterbury Road School

Old Kent Road, SE14
London Borough of Lewisham
Canterbury Road School map location

It seems Canterbury Road is now Ilderton Road, but according to maps, Ilderton Road and Old Kent Road come under Southwark Council, not Lewisham Borough Council. A pub on the corner of Ilderton Road is called The Canterbury Arms, so presumably the above is correct and school was nearby. We include a map link, and hope someone will enlighten us.

  1. I remember Nynehead st School with standing walls only, I was living in Chubworthy st at the time, what type of school was it, how many pupils attended, when did it close, or was it bombed.

  2. I used to live in Cottesbrook Street opposite Nynhead Road School from 1949 until 1960. We always called it “The Bomb School” but I believe it was sinking in the clay and was abandoned. When I lived there it was part demolished and as kids we spent a lot of time playing over there.
