Statement of Interest

The brickwork to sides and rear forms an intricate chequered pattern. During the rectorship of Thomas Tyacke, it was decided to erect a sanatorium on a small hill behind the school, known as 'The Knoll' and 'Tom-a-Crochter'. The building was subsequently used as a residence for boarding pupils and is now (2001) the Music Department.
