School and No.1)


School, c1860. On the north side, St Paul's Square, the school
is either designed to give the appearance of a terrace of
houses or has been expanded into a terrace of middle class
houses. Architect unknown to date. According to Brayshay the
school was built for Caroline Brewin, the daughter of John
Heathcoat, as part of a group of consistently designed
buildings, including St Paul's Street and centred on St Paul's
Church, built on land donated by Heathcoat and funded from
rentals from the houses.
MATERIALS: yellow Flemish bond brick to the show elevations;
stone rubble rear and end walls with brick dressings, south
end wall roughcast; slate roofs; stacks with brick shafts and
crowned chimney pots; cast-iron rainwater goods; cast-iron
window sills, similar to those found on Heathcoat's industrial
STYLE: Georgian.
PLAN: the school is on a corner site between the south side of
St Paul's Square and Brewing Road. The arrangement of windows
suggests that there is a hall on the first floor at the east
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. 5-window front to Brewing Road, gabled to
the front at the right end, with deep verges on brackets. The
ground floor has three 16-pane hornless timber sashes and two
roundheaded doorways which are domesticated in manner with
rusticated quoins Greek key mouldings on the reveals and
simple fanlights with spoke glazing bars. 4-panel front doors
have the lower panels flush. Triple first-floor window in
gable has a round-headed central sash with margin panes
flanked by two 4 over 4-pane sashes.
The St Paul's Square elevation is 10 bays arranged as the
facades of 4 houses with the downpipes of the rainwater goods
sunk in chases in the walls. 10 first-floor 16-pane timber
hornless sashes. 4 doorways, matching those on the east end,
all with disused panelled doors.
The rear elevation retains sash windows.
INTERIOR: partially inspected. Original joinery survives.
