1880 – Bell Terrace Schools, Newcastle Upon Tyne

Architect: Oliver & Leeson

0007

“This group of schools was one of the first erected by the board. It is carried out entirely in stone, with Ashlar dressings and slated roofs. Accommodation is pro-v-ided for 1,000 children in the manner shown upon the plan. The leading idea of the arrangement was to place the class-rooms in such a manner that complete supervision would be obtained by the head-master, without traversing corridors or leaving the main room. Cap-rooms, teachers’ private rooms, and the usual accessories are provided. The cost of the buildings was about £9,600. Messrs. N. and K. Reed were the contractors, and the architect was Mr. Thomas Oliver, of Newcastle-on-Tyne. ” Perspective view & ground plan published in The Building News, August 20th 1880.
