Staatsmiddelbare School voor Meisjes


This is the ‘Staatsmiddelbare School voor Meisjes’ or ‘RMS’. It is an abandoned school in Hemiksem, a town in the province Antwerpen in Belgium. Eventually the school, built in 1932 was demolished in 2020.

The RMS, which was located in the Bouwerijstraat in Hemiksem. It opened its doors for the first time in 1932. The school used to be a girls school, but later both male and females were teached here. The location is not big, besides the class rooms we found some administration offices and we also visited the gym hall next to the school building. In 1982 it had to close its doors due to a lack of students.

During my visit the place was already abandoned for 30 years, but still most of the chalkboards were still showing the last lessons learnt. Eventually in 2020 the old school was demolished to build new houses. I took these photos of the ‘Staatsmiddelbare School voor Meisjes’ during my visit in 2007.
