Highview Primary School
TQ 27NE 2/9
A London School Board building dated 1890 on an attached terracotta plaque.
(T J Bailey: architect to the Board). It is in Flemish Renaissance style, of
yellow stock and red brick with stone dressings, and forms an irregular cluster
of attached blocks having tall and narrow proportions. The blocks are 3, 4, 5 or
6 storeys high and lit by double or triple tiers of sash windows of varying form:
some tiers are recessed within arches or between attenuated lesenes. The
composition is dominated by an asymmetrically-placed 7-storey tower whose steep-
pitched roof is capped by a curvilinear lead spire carrying a weather-vane.
The brick boundary wall has integral buttresses and is pierced by high doorways
and articulated by piers. Both doorways and piers have stone copings.
