Sept 2003 You'd be hard pressed to recreate the same scene today, with rows of parked cars clogging up the street. The building ceased to be used as a school in the 1970s, and is now known as St John's Buildings. The street has also been renamed, and is known as Canterbury Crescent. The old school now faces International House.
