St John's and St Clements's School
Formerly known as: Ady's Road Board School ADY'S ROAD.
Board School. 1883-4. By TJ Bailey, architect. For the School
Board for London. Red brick in English bond, treated as banded
rustication to ground floor and pilasters and bands to upper
floors; stock brick to upper-floor walls. Roofs of tiles. In
essence a cross wing plan, with south wing projecting to the
west and north wing to the east; on axis with Ondine Road a
large canted bay of 6 windows, capped by an octagonal roof
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys over basement. Unless otherwise noted, all
openings are flat-arched, many set into segmental-arched
recesses. Hall block cross wings have similar design: short
elevation with gabled dormer, with a plaque in cast stone.
Hall block runs north from right-hand wing, the 1st and 2nd
floors articulated into 5 bays by giant pilasters and corner
pilasters. Third floor raised in early C20. To the north of
hall block the most unusual feature, the overscaled canted
bay-cum-turret; paired windows to each facet; high stacks to
short returns of bay act as framing elements. Ground-floor
openings of hall block are segmental-arched.
South-facing elevation of south cross wing distinguished by 2
Dutch gabled dormers, that to right slightly projecting and
framed by pilasters, similar to those already noted and
carried across this elevation; each of 1st-floor windows in
gabled range on the left is set in a deep segmental-arched
recess. Stacks on axis with each of gabled dormers. The north
cross wing repeats many of these features.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
Forms a group with Church of St John the Evangelist, East
Dulwich Road (qv).
