Abbeydale Grange School was a mixed comprehensive school in Sheffield, England, established in 1958 and closed after the 2009/10 academic year,[1] after being listed amongst the schools with worst GCSE examination results.[2] The school was set in a green site off Abbeydale Road, a short bus journey from Sheffield city centre. It served both the local area and the wider city community.
