A typical state school of the 1970s. Boxy. Grey. Dead bodies here and there.


The state school at Strong Alley was one of the first public institutions in Wykewood, catering at first to a large number of students. Much of the Strong Alley student body came from beyond Wykewood's borders, especially after the state-of-the-art privately run Barwood Row School was built in the next block. Strong Alley students tended to be more working-class; it was said they were either "in the classroom" - law-abiding and studying - or "in the alley", a member of the Strong Alley Gang.

The Gang became notorious throughout Wykewood for its brash acts of vandalism and theft. (Samborne Walk Police Department dedicated a taskforce to bringing the gang's members to heel.) It was rumoured that Strong Alley students were behind the fire that turned the block to the east into a burnt-out mess, but no evidence of this was found. Since many students and their parents of Strong Alley School lived in the building, the theory was ultimately dismissed.

Strong Alley's sex education program was considered excellent, one of very few reasons to enrol a child there, rather than the more well-equipped neighbouring school, and was notable for hiring Crabbe Bank 'professionals' as guest speakers. When questioned about this early in the program's life, headmistress Christine Poole said, "Well, we've got to keep students in the classroom and out of the alley somehow." (This may have been the origin of the saying noted previously.) The school was equipped with a canteen, since torn down entirely for barricades; a library converted from a classroom; and a relatively large staff room that offers views of the whole school grounds - if you can stand the smell of stale smoke, cheap coffee, and rotting newspapers.
