The original building is currently used as an adult education centre. The replacement building, erected between 1931 and 1938 and officially opened on 12 October 1938, is still in use. Although many alterations and additions have been made to it since it was originally constructed, including being partly rebuilt after being bombed during World War II, having been mistaken for Eton College.
In this project, engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd will install a bespoke lightning protection system at the school, ensuring safety for the structure and all users in the event of an electrical storm.
PTSG is the UK’s leading supplier of lightning protection services – and through constituent company JW Gray, is believed to be the oldest trading company providing lightning protection services in the UK, dating back to 1835.
