Between Searles Road, Darwin Street and Chatham Street. Splendid late Bailey school on three floors, in the grand manner with terracotta dressings in a neo-classical style. The regal façade to the North is only marred by a rather poor mansard roof insertion on the fourth floor at the centre. There is a small one stroey block to the West. Ceased to be a school in the 1970s. Converted to housing after 1992.
