For most of us school was our first detailed experience of a building outside the homes of our parents friends and relations. Many people react emotionally when their old school charged with so many memories is closed or demolished. Not all school buildings are worthy of designation but many are major local landmarks and demonstrate an important part of our society's evolution.This book aims to raise awareness of the wide range of school buildings built in England from the Reformation to the Millennium and discusses which buildings may be worthy of greater appreciation and preservation. It summarises the development of schools and analyses how social attitudes have been expressed in their architecture and planning.Finally it looks at the adaptation of older schools to modern needs and new uses for schools around the country drawing on examples of best practice from Historic Building Inspectors and Advisers.Elain Harwood is a historian with English Heritage specialising in architecture of the twentieth century. She is also a Trustee of the Twentieth Century Society and co-editor of its journals including titles on the Festival of Britain and the 1960s.Pub Date: January 2010
