9/34 Grammar School (front range
- II

Grammar school and headmaster's house, 1909-11 by F.H. Greenaway of London.
Rendered brickwork above a brick plinth, sandstone dressings and green
slate roofs. A long, roughly symmetrical building in Free Style with C17
antecedents with a picturesque grouping of gables, bays and tall chimney
stacks. 2 storeys. Headmaster's house on left has a central gable with a
two-storey canted bay window to the left of the door. Central block is
recessed, with gables at either end, a central porch which breaks forward
slightly in line with a square clock cupola placed like a louvre on the
roof. To the right the hall roof rises to full height and breaks forward
at right angles, presenting a wide gable over a tall canted bay window with
a battlemented top. To the right again is a single storey office block
with a central gable. All windows have mullions and transomes. Detailing
is simple, but openings are chamfered and the hall gable is coped.
Interior: Hall of 6 bays, ceiled above the collar of archbraced roof.
Simple panelling. Canted bay to south, 5-light window to north. History:
The school was founded in the town in 1549 and moved to present site in
1911. The use of a London architect is explained by the School's
connection with the Drapers' Company.
