Village College, Impington, Cambridgeshire

This comprehensive school was originally built as a village college. It was constructed in 1938-9 by Walter Gropius and E Maxwell Fry. This is the most significant and only unaltered work by the pioneering modern architect and educator Walter Gropius (1883-1969) from his short residency in Britain (1934-7), and one of his few buildings anywhere. Gropius was the pioneer of the simple modern style of architecture in brick and glass. Many future schools and buildings would be designed following these principals.
