NOTES: This co-educational comprehensive school for 1725 pupils occupied a four and a half acre rectangular site bound by streets on all four sides, which was well below the standard for a school of this size. It stood approximately ten feet below the road surface at the level of the basements and gardens of the houses that originally occupied the site. The demolition of this controversial school began in 2008 to make way for a new school campus. The architect for the school was John Bancroft.
