Main building of
Sunnyhill Junior Mixed
and Infants School
TQ 3071 34/951


London Board School of 1900, dated on plaque in gable, by E R Robson's team.
A more developed version of an earlier design, with great emphasis on chimneys
as decorative features. Main front to Valley Road has 2-storey, 2-bay centre,
each bay 2 windows wide under projecting pedimented gable. Symmetrical with one-storey
side sections. Stock brick with red brick and stone dressings. High pitched
swept tiled roofs. Central chimney between gables. At either hip of the half-hipped
roof behind is a tall chimney to front and back, linked by a round-arched bridge.
Each side wing has a chimney as central feature. Between this and centre a tall,
2-window bay, crowned by paired gables, breaks the eaves and rises well above
them; the right bay has a further gable. Return ranges of one storey with projecting
end wings (one formed by side section of main front). Two pairs of tall gabled
bays breaking eaves. Bridged chimneys crown roof ridge. Asymmetrical west range
has tall narrow copper fleche, with prodigiously swept eaves at south end.
