Another nice story has emerged about the use of the Old School Hall for education in Sneinton.

The Iona School, which is now based on Sneinton Dale behind the BANCA Community Centre, started life with a few pupils back in 1985- based at the Old School Hall. It was only in the building for a year or so before moving to its present home, but the original teachers who founded the school have fond memories and a proud association with the building.

From a single class at the Old School Hall, Iona has grown to cover education for all years from nursery to eleven years old.
