Gill wrote: "I believe Joys Green Primary School has recently closed. This photograph was taken in  1911.. Maybe someone will recognise their ancestors. The only person I can name  is the fair haired boy with large white collar ,2nd right in the second row. He was my mothers elder brother who sadly died the same year that this was taken. His name was Frederick Jack Coole".

Michael Stephens wrote (Jan 2009): "Joys Green School closed in July 2008. The school had been opened since  1883. I have the book which  was sale on the open day just before the school closed".

Jay Mason added (December 2011): "... The School is now a pupil referral centre and is now apparently damaged inside. Kids are sent here from nearby secondary schools such as Lakers and Heywood.

Glyn Watkins added (December 2013): "... I was privileged to attend Joys Green Primary School in the sixties. The head master was the one and only Mr John Philips . The big welshman was very strict but fair, he concealed a hooked cane up his sleeve and used it if you were out of line. Mr Philips also taught mum and dad, so was a good servant to Forest education. When he retired in 1969 we as pupils bought him a new cherry pipe".

Sam Yemm added (Mar, 2021): "... I Attended this school from 1971. My brother and 2 sisters also attended. Our mum Sheila Barnett, her brother and sister attended and also my nan, Hilda Duggan, and siblings went there. I'm not sure if any of the family before that went there. It was a fabulous little community school".
