II

School with gate piers, gates and railings. 1882. By Richard Adams. For Leeds School Board. Extension added by 1892 probably by the same architect. Coursed squared gritstone, slate hipped and gabled roofs. In Italianate style; on a steeply sloping and congested site, U-plan, 2 storeys. Facing Sandford Road the paired round-arched entrances are far left, 3 arches of covered playground right, projecting wing left with segmental-arched ground-floor windows and pedimented end bay with round window in gable. A short 1-bay projecting wing right has a similar entrance; 3-window addition extends to street with 2 round arches to ground floor, inserted windows. Facade to Beecroft Street has pedimented gable right and added bay left. Shallow pilasters, continuous string at 1st-floor and eaves levels, gable copings, tall corniced stacks. Stone wall with iron railings and gateway close the forecourt: rails with bud finials, square ashlar piers with recessed panels, deep cornice, rounded capstones. INTERIOR: not inspected. Richard Adams was architect to the School Board 1873-1886; most of his designs were in brick but here the local stone was used; his early single-storey buildings were in a Gothic Revival style but from 1878 Adams used a Classical style for the multi-storey schools on congested sites. A probable influence for the change of style was George Corson's Municipal and Board School Offices, Calverley Street, 1876-1884 (qv).
