During the 1970s, the school became a City of Nottingham Comprehensive and reverted to The Henry Mellish School. The Grammar School was gradually replaced by the comprehensive intake into first year. After a period of decline and the school being taken into ‘special measures’ and then designated a ‘sports college’ it was closed in 2009. All the buildings have since been demolished and the site cleared.
