A drinking fountain commemorates Margaret Montgomery a member of staff of the Spensley Street School who died in 1917. The fountain was erected by the parents and scholars of the school as a token of their esteem and affection.

Miss Montgomery left a bequest to the school in her will with the money to be invested. The interest on the investment was to be used each year for prizes for the schoolchildren.
