Scope and Content

This school, also known as Cowley St John Secondary School and Cowley St John Comprehensive School, was formed in 1963 by the merger of the boys and girls schools. In 1972 it moved to a new site on the Donnington allotments off Cricket Road. In 1984 due to falling attendances it merged with St Edmund Campion Roman Catholic School and moved to a new site in Iffley Turn. The school later was renamed St Augustine of Canterbury RC/CE Upper School. The school was demolished in 2006-2007 to make way for flats, the school merging with the Cardinal Newman School (please see S76/13 for records of this school) to form St Gregory the Great Catholic School.
