At the junction of London Road and Victoria Avenue, once occupied one of the finest sites in the Borough, and was a first instalment of a splendid scheme of municipal offices designed by Mr H. T. Hare, F.R.I.B.A. The School, erected at a total cost of of over £25,000, was the property of the Town Council, for higher educational purposes. The building was of late Renaissance design and consisted of a main block with wing, containing accommodation for 400 pupils of the Secondary Day School and the students of the Evening Classes and School of Art. The foundation stone was laid on 24th September 1901, by Lord Avebury and the building was opened on 13th September 1902, by the Countess of Warwick.
