Cross Green Comprehensive School was a medium sized secondary school set in large grounds on Cross Green Lane. In 1996, it changed its name to Copperfields College and was closed because of falling numbers and poor results and demolished in 2009. The site has now been cleared and all that remains is a painted over sign and a layby in front of the old entrance.

It was the birthplace in 1942 of the poet Barry Tebb and the setting for his epic poem,'Bridge Over the Aire', considered his finest poem by Michael Haslam, a leading poet of the so-called 'Cambridge School.'
