Opened in 1889
Originally Park Street Infants school, but latterly known as Queens Park Junior School, this was opened on 8 November 1889. It replaced the older school in Eastern Road, built in 1826, which was under the auspices of the British and Foreign Bible Society. Together with the adjoining Senior School, it was built and fitted at a total cost of £11,300.

Demolished in 1987
As some illustration of the density of population in what was then a rather poor area, the accommodation was for 798 children. The building did not quite attain its centenary, being demolished in July 1987. The area was added to the the Queen’s Park Senior School playground.
