Info from web->

The girls grammar school was built in 1910 after a fierce design competition in 1909. It was won by J. M. Bottomley, son and Welburn, an architectural firm based in Leeds. and was built by J. T. Wright. The design was simple, built in a V shape plan with a central section and two ground floor wings. J. M. Bottomley designed the building in an Edwardian Baroque style utilising red brick and it was laid in an English cross bond style with white fa´ence dressings.

The building was altered in 1935 to designs produced by T Sydney Athron and E Vincent Dyson. They added first floors to the two wings and moved the assembly hall from the ground floor to the first floor on the Waterdale wing. Various rooms were changed to suit new needs, an extension was built on the south east of the Chequer wing to house new laboratory facilities.

The school finally amalgamated the the Boy's Grammar School to become Hall Cross Comprehensive School and finally moved to a new location. The Girls School has sat empty since.
