Between Adys Road, Keston Road, Hinckley Road and Amott Road. Recommended for listing by Andrew Saint in 1991. Formerly known as Woodstock School. Chunky, asymmetrical school, strong site value, assertive for date. Added storey to hall block damages it. There appears to be no date plaque. An interesting late Robson school (with a poor roof conversion to the W side). There is a fine fleche to the prominent mezzanine hexagonal bay structure. Irregular in plan and commands the site well. Generally in a Queen Anne style. There is a relatively unintrusive modern entrance alteration.
