According to stories Rolleston Junior School in Leicester is (or at least was)  haunted by Lady Jane. Who she was exactly no one seemed to know but some people said that she was buried underneath the Huts that were at the back of the School. Others would say she was buried underneath the Mound that was at the back of the School Playing Field. Many people claimed to have seen her but if you disturbed when you saw her she would turn nasty. It was always better to leave her alone. She was spotted at various parts of the School and Playing Fields.

Maybe just a Story to scare other people/kids but who knows.

Re: Rolleston Junior School Haunting.


This actually sounds typical of a school ghost.  Kids often tell stories like the girl in the bathroom (made worse by movies like the Harry Potter franchise) or the teacher that died in the library.  Most of the time, they're made up by the students, though at older insitutions they get passed down from one class to the next, so it's hard to tell who started it in the first place.  Some school ghosts have been around for a surprisingly long time.

I've always thought that it was made up as I've always known that the only 'Lady Jane' (or least the most famous) is of Lady Jane Grey (the 9 Day Queen) at Bradgate Park, Newtown Linford. Although this didn't stop it from scaring the 8 year old me.

The saddest, to me , anyway, was Lady Jane Franklin, widow of the famed explorer Sir John Franklin.  She spent a staggering sum sending expeditions to find her missing husband. 


And now my burden it gives me pain
For my long-lost Franklin I would cross the main
Ten thousand pounds I would freely give
To know on earth, that my Franklin do live.
