    Default Iqra Islamic School, Littlemore, Oxford - October 2013


    So the first derp of the day, despite it being posted in the wrong order. I have been meaning to explore this place for a long time and scouted it a few times in 2012 to no avail.

    It looked lush back then but somewhere between then and now the boat was missed… It was originally a C of E school called “Lawn Upton” but their website suggests a 2003 closure as that is the last term listed.

    It then became Iqra school which taught Islamic girls which closed in 2009. Iqra was nestled in Littlemore, Oxford and taught around 120 students. Aside from that there isn’t much information I can see.

    Unfortunately the interior did not match the exterior in terms of excitement.

    Permission was granted to convert the protected building into 5 houses and demolish any non listed buildings and add 24 new houses.

    Visited with Downsy who very kindly drove
