GV II

School. 1911 by G H Widdows (Derbyshire County Council
architect). Red brick on ashlar plinth with stone and gauged
brick dressing. Slate roof with bell canted overhanging eaves,
moulded stone copings to gables on plain kneelers and vented
brick ridge stacks, also octagonal timber cupola on leaded base
with colonnaded sides and domed copper roof to ridge of central
wing. Two storeys, with complex plan which has a four bay
central range with short wings at 45 degrees to south and longer
ranges at 45 degrees to north. Central hall has four, almost
full height, 3-light, double transomed windows with double
chamfered segment heads plus double keystones and stained glass
to top panes. It also has continuous flush stone bands at sill
and lintel levels of windows and stone parapet over with canted
stone piers between recessed panels. To east of the windows
there is an inserted c1970 doorcase with glazed doors. Short
wings to either side have central 3-light, transomed casement
windows below flat gauged brick arches with stone keyblocks,
flanked by similar single light windows and similar arrangement
of windows above. The gable ends of these wings have three
single light similar windows to ground floor and a large 5-light
segment headed window above with deep stone band over, and a
blind recess below. In the angles between the long and the
short angled ranges there are single bays which cut across.
Both these have semi-circular stone steps up to a deep stone
segment headed doorcase with a curved bracketed cornice over and
long curving keystone stretching from the door lintel to over
the cornice. Above both have an area of brickwork with two
lozenges in lighter brick and above again a stone, canted
mullion and transomed bay window with stone turrets to either
side, each with narrow slit windows near the base. Above the
eaves between the two turrets there are canted stone parapets.
Attached to north are the long ranges which have advanced gabled
bays to each end. These each have a 3-light double transomed
casement window below flat arch with stone keyblock to centre
flanked by similar single light windows on the ground floor, and
similar windows above with a blind semi-circular gauged brick
arch above the central window, also two flush stone bands in the
gable. Between the doorcase and the gabled end bay there are
two similar 3-light windows flanked by similar 2-light windows
nearest the gabled bay and another 3-light window with single
light window nearest the doorcase. Above there are similar
windows in same arrangement. Widdows was an exponent of
advanced ideas on school planning and ventilation.
