Two separate sites
Clark’s College had two sites; one in Dyke Road and the other in the Old Steine on the east side. This building had a plaque on the front wall commemorating the fact that Algernon Gideon Mantell (1790-1852), had lived in the house.
Both sites co-educational
The Old Steine site was for business studies such as shorthand, typing and book keeping while the Dyke Road site catered for general education subjects. The college was co-educational on both sites.
Every Wednesday afternoon was for sports and we played cricket in the summer, and football in the winter on the fields just north of Preston village. We also played on the site on the west side of the London Road in Preston.
