The Edwardian School

The Edwardian School

The Edwardian School in Nottingham is a beautiful old building, both outside and in.

Stepping inside, it’s a delight to see so much of the school still there. Beautiful panelling, solid wooden doors and parquet floors.

Unlike other old buildings that are now used for office space, the Edwardian School still oozes with character. You can picture skipping ropes and hula hoops scattered across the old playground, almost hear the patter of feet in the halls and the ringing of the old school bell. Then night falls, and the darker side of the school shows itself.

EYEWITNESS ACCOUNTS

“I had a few interesting experiences when I investigated The Edwardian School. The first was in the Art Room. Using an ouija board, we had made apparent contact with a small girl. After finishing the experiment, we were discussing the next plan. With it being a hot summer evening, I was wearing a sleeveless top. Standing still with my hands on my hips, I felt the strangest sensation. It can only be described as a change of air, but it wasn’t a breeze and it was directly on one small part of my forearm. Not cold, but cooler than the air in the room. It doesn’t sound dramatic but it was a very interesting personal experience. 

I won’t forget the second experience. Huddled in the dark dusty cellar when a summer thunderstorm erupted. Before the noise, we were having a responsive session with a voice recorder. It seemed we were receiving quite clear answers to our questions regarding the building. The atmosphere suddenly changed as the storm began. Suddenly, loud bangs were heard from different areas of the room. Almost as though someone was hitting a large metal object against the pipes, it was that loud and distinct.

The Edwardian School is a fantastic location and it’s lovely to see it retaining its original charm. I can’t wait to return!”
