ST. JOHN'S CHURCH SCHOOLS, HIGHER BROUGHTON, MANCHESTER. These schools have been erected during the past twelvemonths in place of the old buildings, which were altogether inadequate. They comprise classrooms and a large central hall, 75ft. by 40ft., with open-timbered roof and with platform at one end, as it is proposed to utilise the room for public and parish meetings. A small portion of the old schools is retained to serve as class-rooms. The whole of the buildings are of picked common bricks with terracotta and stone dressings. Messrs. Wm. Brown and Son were the contractors at a total cost of £1,505. The architect is Mr. W. S. Ogden, who also restored and enlarged the church in 1893. [Building News 2 April 2897 page 485]
