Between Albany Road, Albany Mews, Boundary Lane and Bradenham Close. The N classroom façade is unaltered middle Robson with an attractive fleche and early plaques indicating a 1877 date. The S façade has E and W wings which appear to be part of the original but an unusual hall treatment, which is slightly off centre and has a plaque indicating a 1904 date. The S façade has third floor mansard lights suggesting use as rooms for drawing (although S facing would be unusual for this). Sympathetically converted into apartments, perhaps in the late 1990s. There are no outbuildings (except the wet play shed, now a bin store) and the Schoolkeeper's House is missing. Perhaps these were replaced by new build apartments on the SW corner of the site which ape the SBL style, not terribly well, but at least do not block the view of the main hall façade from the park.
