An interesting school in two distinct buildings. The W building would appear to be late Bailey on the usual three storey I plan, with the E wing unbuilt (there are the glazed tiles for the stairwells). This building is in the grand manner with stucco on the second floor and a rooftop playground. The building to the E is in the Queen Anne style and only two storeys and is oriented the other way. This is probably also by Bailey but is an example of his very late smaller additional buildings. The school also has a fascinating and ususual entrance in Grosvenor Terrace to the S, with a pretend house façade.
