Summary: Day-to-day shots of the Northumberland Heath Secondary Modern School
Title number: 1480
LSA ID: LSA/1972
Description: Opening shot shows two men wheeling some sort of large unidentified object along a corridor, then unloading it awkwardly from a van, with the help of two more men.
Next, a teenage boy stands in a greenhouse, reaching down towards some plants.
A man in his 50s/60s sits at a desk talking on the phone. He is bald and wears a suit with glasses; a trophy sits to the left of his desk. He talks on the phone whilst writing something down, hangs up, then calls someone else. Another man joins him and they talk whilst occasionally making notes on various books and pieces of paper. Another man of around the same age brings in a large red book in which the sitting man writes something.
Further information: Northumberland Heath Secondary Modern School and Erith Grammar School were amalgamated in 1967 to form the Erith School.
