Highfield Junior

School. 1911 by G H Widdows (Derbyshire County Council
architect). Brown brick, pebbledashed over sill height, with
stone and tile dressings. Steeply pitched plain tile roofs with
wide overhanging eaves and vented brick ridge and side wall
stacks. All gables are about 3 feet narrower than the walls
below and have tile dentilled eaves. Single storey, plus attics
in parts. Three ranges with transverse passages between them.
North front has a central gabled bay with attics, flanked by
large brick external stacks and lower wings to sides. Central
segment headed arch has stone impost blocks and double keystone
with radiating tiles between. Behind is a plain plank door and
to either side there are 2-light casement windows. Beyond to
either side there are two 3-light casement windows with low
transomes. Above, in the central bay, is another 3-light window
which has a blind semi-circular recess over with stone keyblock.
To either side it has lower single casement windows and large
hopper heads. To the top of the gable there are three small
louvred vents. South elevation is similar. Three gable ends to
west and east elevations, each have a central segment headed
blind recess with stone keyblock and three casement windows
within. To either side of the gable the flanking horizontal
pieces have three vertical stone bands. Between the gabled
bays, the transverse passages each have three pairs of double
glazed doors behind an open arcade of wooden posts with curved
braces to top, except southern passage on west elevation which
has been boarded in. Above there are three roof dormers with
3-light casement windows over each arcade. All fenestration is
small pane casements. Built as part of a group with Highfield
Infants School. Widdows was an exponent of advanced ideas on
school planning and ventilation.
