Post-War School Boom

Thursday, 29 March 2012


Adverts from 'School Construction, 1954', a reprint of articles published that year in the School Construction section of "Education" (Official Organ of the Association of Education Committees).

Amazing Fact of the Day: a new school was finished in England & Wales every day between 1950 and 1970!

Also fascinating - to me, anyway - is how far back that classic school building style goes (see 1st and 3rd pics).  Probably because I was born in the late 60s, but I'd always sort of assumed it didn't arrive till the 60s or even 70s. 
starts in the 40s, in fact, in Hertfordshire, of all places.
