'Hasland Hall (school), Mansfield Road, is of c. 1800, ashlar, with sash windows and a semi-circular Doric porch, very similar to Holywell House, Chesterfield.' (1)
Map evidence indicates that Hasland Hall became a school sometime in the early 20th century, as it is shown as a house on the 3rd edition Ordnance Survey map of c1912-1921 but as Hasland Hall School on the 4th edition of the late 1930s. (2-3)
Hasland Hall and its surrounding gardens and parkland was sold to the Mayor, Alderman and Burgesses of the Borough of Chesterfield in 1931. The building was converted for use as a Secondary Modern School, which opened with 280 scholars in January 1932. (4)
