Clapham Common SouthSide

As a student at King's College London in the seventies, I spent some time in Halliday Hall on South Side.
Just next door, and to the North of us was a (disused in 1977) school which was used for some filming of the TV series 'Danger UXB'.

Does anyone know what the school was called? It was opposite the Windmill pub.
Neither the school nor Halliday are there today.

This:

would seem to suggest that it was St Gerards RC Secondary Boys School.

That's the one; thanks.
In one of the scenes of the series where they're using the schoolyard as their bomb disposal depot you can see the window of the room below mine in the background of the shot.

Thanks again,
Tom
