In 1912 the LCC produced plans to rebuild the Woolmore Street school, to provide places for 392 boys and 392 girls, and to erect a new infants' school, with 432 places, in Union Street. This scheme involved the purchase of the Bricklayers' Arms from Whitbread & Company and its adaptation as the schoolkeeper's house, and the acquisition of Nos 1113 Ashton Street and Nos 11 and 13 Woolmore Street. (ref. 391) The designs were prepared by the LCC's Architect's Department. *
