Birchfield Road Secondary Modern School | The Official Ozzy Osbourne Site

Birchfield Road Secondary Modern School

I am anxious to take photo's of 14 Lodge Road, Albert Road Junior School and Birchfield Road Secondary Modern School.

However, Looking at the local Map Birchfield Road is a major road and it does not show a school anywhere!

Can anyone help me in my quest?????

Only just found this Ozzy... We went to Birchfield Rd school together and I think we both left together in 1963.. I have one picture of the front of the school if you still need one (as mentioned the school is long since demolished).. How can I upload or forward the picture to you if you still want it? Regards Tony.

It has been pointed out by a fellow member of the Site/facebook page HOME OF METAL, the school was knocked down and the POLY (Polytechnic college) now the University of Birmingham stands on the spot!

Thanks for that, HOWEVER, I found it by accident, and took as many photos as possible, which only really included the gates as school was sitting. I did however find a link on line, and it shows Ozzy and Sharon making a visit to the school. I did list it on my Face Book page, and I beileve that it was duly circulated.
I have sent messages to the other Sabbath Originals asking for information of their parental homes, schools, pubs, etc, BUT as yet I have heard JACK! So life goes on. SO, if any one has information, please drop me a message, and I will do my best to duly oblige.

My dad was the Caretaker of Birchfield Road Secondary School. We lived there till 1962: I'll have a root around

The BAR is very easy to find, BUT it is the School that is proving very hard to find. ANY clues?

Then she told me she had a gun.
It sounded like she'd used it once before on him.

Well, I have undertaken part of my quest. With no work today, I had to go out in the direction of ASTOn, So I did my business, and found Albert Street School, and navigated to LODGE ROAD. For those fortunate, check my facebook page, and check the photo's!

NOw I have to find Birchfield Secondry Modern School, and Ozbournes bar!. Well, the latter is easy, as i have already described. Oh well, that is another day!"

Well my dear Streaky here we go, and ALL those who are note quite officenardo's.

14 Lodge Road - Parental home of his most royal highness the prince of Darkneess himself - Ozzy

Albert Street Junior School - is where Ozzy Attended

These two locations ARE easily found by me, an almost local 7 - 8 miles anyway.

Birchfield Secondry Modern School (Comprehensive, and now called Senior schools) is not to be found on any map of Birmingham. The Birchfield Road is a main arterial road in/out of Birmingham. On the whole it is a Dual carriageway, with some raised section, and some fly overs. SO since Ozzy and Tony were in attendance, the school probably has been flattened! So the rough location would be nice!

At some stage I will go into Birmingham and Photograph the latest incarnation of "Osbournes Bar"! It faces what used to be the Central Fire Station, and Aston Triangle/Aston University. It is also spitting distance from the Childrens (former General) Hospital Heli Pad, down the road (Corporation Street) Methodist Central Hall, and The Law Courts! There used to be, and as I have not been there for ages I am not sure if the second hand recrod shop is still there. I think that it was called "The Plastics Factory". I have taken some photo's of the Birmingham Town Hall, BUT I will endeavour to take some more angles.

I dont think I can help you Andy, you should know better than me but pictures would be well received

hey, why do you want to find this school so much?
