Former Special Girls School,
Kingsway College Clerkenwell Centre
Former Special Girls annexe of Hugh Myddelton Schools. 1902
(on the evidence of inscriptions on the nearby gate in the
school wall). Yellow brick with dressings of red brick, stucco
and render, tiled roof. Flat-arched entrance with decorative
stone architrave in wing to north; all windows flat-arched
with gauged brick heads and red brick dressings; the main
building under a two-span roof and presumably originally a
balanced composition to the school yard of three bays, each
consisting of a tall window partly in a full dormer, a lower
window under the eaves, and a stack below the ridge; extension
at north end with a flat-roof; the elevation to Woodbridge
Road similar but of two bays only.
This building is one of those provided by the London School
Board from 1892 onwards for children with learning
difficulties; discipline and teaching methods were more
relaxed and liberal than in the main Board Schools.
