NOTES: Originally called Trinity School or Trinity House School from the Victorian building on the site, the new school was to be named 'Two Saints' as designated by the London County Council and was described as such in the architectural press at the time. The most strking aspect of the new school was the assembly hall block with its pentagram plan of five individual hyperbolic paraboloid roofs separated by glazing and touching only at their common peripheral supports. Each roof covers one 'year room' in each point of the pentagram on the first floor. In 2007 the school became the Ark Globe Academy.
