King’s College School

History of King's College School

The main building 1877-8 and the western extension of 1898 were designed by Fawcett, who ‘failed to excel’ according to Pevsner. A H Moberley was responsible for further extensions in 1927-8 and 1932.

There is a detailed Wikipedia article which notes the various locations of the school since its foundation in the C15.
