Tixover Grange School, Duddington, near Stamford, Lincolnshire
On 24 July 1944, an Approved School for Junior Boys was certified to operate in premises at Tixover Grange, Duddington. (Although the property actually stands in Rutland, the nearby village of Duddington is in Northamptonshire, while the Grange's postal address is usually given as being near Stamford, Lincolnshire.)
The school's managers surrendered its certificate on 30 November 1954.
The property is now occupied by a care home.
