Between Sandbed Road and Waterford Road was Neepsend School, which was opened on 1st September 1891.


In the main building were three separate schools each with its own head-teacher and staff. The school was the first new Free School in Sheffield and provided accommodation for 720 pupils between the age of five and ten.


In 1899 the school was reorganised into senior mixed and junior mixed upstairs and infants with 767 on the roll.


In 1903 it was called Neepsend Council School, in 1926 the Hillfoot Council School, in 1944 Hillfoot County School and in 1958 the Hillfoot Junior Mixed and Infants School.


It was an all age school until 1958 when senior children were transferred to Chaucer Secondary School.

Neepsend School was closed on the 25th July 1975, due to the almost complete disappearance of the area’s population.
