The Leys School
History of the Leys School
Pevsner’s Cambridgeshire notes that the school was:
‘founded by Methodists in 1875, The Leys is Cambridgeshire’s chief expression of public school architectural tradition. But at the heart is a villa built probably in 1815 (now Headmaster’s House).’
Royal Commission Survey of Cambridge 1959: the Leys School, headmaster’s house …. the land was enclosed in 1811; the house is traditionally dated 1815, which is possibly on stylistic grounds, and shown on R G Baker’s map of 1830. …. inside many original fittings survive….
Listed buildings at the school are: The King George V Gateway & Library (1913-14), the Chapel (1905-6) and the Headmaster’s House (c1820).
There is a Wikipedia entry on the school.
