Ensham Secondary School
TQ 2771 17/4
Built about 1900 by the London School Board (Board Architect T J Bailey) as
Broadwater Road School in Northern Renaissance style and of the familiar tall
narrow proportions. It is of yellow stocks with stone and red brick dressings
and tile roofs.
The near symmetrical elevation to Broadwater Road comprises:-
an advanced 5-storey centre bay with coupled tiers of windows recessed within
arches and crowned by a triplet of windows set in an arcade, the whole framed by
a gable with richly carved details;
flanking 6-storey towers of coupled windows, the top floors with single windows
only and the towers crowned by copper helm roofs with spirelets; stepped-back
3-storey wings comprising pairs of tripartite bays, the tall centre window of
each bay flanked by short windows and rising between banded piers into a half-
gable. Part of the fenestration of the left hand bay is suppressed.
The stacks have oversailing courses.
The near symmetrical 3-storey elevation to Gatton Road comprises a recessed 4-bay
centre with segmental-headed dormers between pairs of tripartite bays. These
pairs resemble those on the Broadwater Road elevation except that each pair is
articulated by a central arched entrance recess. Part of the fenestration of the
left-hand bay is suppressed.
