School Information

South Kilburn High, Stafford Road was opened in 1972 for 1200 students as a state modern comprehensive in a brand new building incorporating the old Percy Road premises. It was formed by merging Carlton Vale Junior Girls and Percy Road Junior Boys School. It's name was changed to South Kilburn Community College before it was demolished in 1997.

Headmaster: Douglas Heusch
Deputy Heads: William Boyd, Oliver Judaman Seecoomar

The campus was divided into 7 areas:

  • A Block (Administration)
  • B Block (Percy Road old school building)
  • C Block (Creative)
  • E Block (Economics and dining hall)
  • S Block (Sciences)
  • Sports Hall
  • Playground/Cricket Nets
  • The majority of the photos on this site were taken by Geoff Foster who in the mid '70s was one of the many newly graduated teachers who first taught at South Kilburn. His photos were displayed at reunion '06 and we are grateful for his contribution.
