Overseal Manor Special School
Administrative HistoryBrookside School officially opened in May 1964 as a residential school for 100 children (80 of whom were residential) with moderate learning difficulties. Its first intake of pupils in 1963 included those pupils resident at Overseal Manor Special School, whose head teacher also transferred to become the head teacher of Brookside School. For this reason the log books and admission registers of Brookside School begin as those for Overseal Manor School. The first meeting of the Brookside Management Committee (known as the Breadsall Boarding School (ESN) Management Committee) was held at Overseal Manor School in December 1962.

The premises at Overseal manor were re-opened as a residential school for "senior maladjusted children".

By the late 1990s Brookside Special School registered with the Department of Education and Employment (DFEE) to cater co-educationally for boys and girls aged 7-19. In practice it took boys aged 11-16, 20 of whom were residential pupils. From 1997 the School accommodated pupils with severe emotional and behavioural difficulties (EBD). The School also changed its name in 1997 to Ferriby School. It finally closed in June 1999.
Custodial HistoryThe records were deposited in the Derbyshire Record Office in September 1999 and August 2004.
