Any history/anecdotes re Kingswell School? Both I and my late sister Stella Chapman, attended the school. George H Chapman had it built. Mid 50s.

My husband's ancestor was Dr George Leigh who lived at the Grove in Arnold. We would like to know his wife's name and the connection with Dr Wm Beattie.
