Titus Salt School

A recent late afternoon ramble brought me home past the new Titus Salt School. It is situated at the far side of Roberts Park, across the river from Saltaire. It opened in September 2008, one result of Bradford's £400m Building Schools for the Future programme. It replaced an older school - Salt Grammar School - on the adjacent site. I have not been inside (though I hope one day to have an opportunity to) but from the outside it looks an exciting building. It's a school for 11-18 year olds and specialises in Maths and Computing. It is, no doubt, packed full of new technology. I hope its students appreciate it!

This photo has not been heavily processed in Photoshop. The strong sunshine has rendered an almost poster-like effect to the building, which is long and low and rather art-deco in its design. The school was designed and built by a consortium called Integrated Bradford. Looks like they did a good job.

  2. It looks fine - but one can't help fearing what it might look like after ten years of weathering, austerity-fueled lack of repair and the day-to-day erosion of teenagers.

  3. So surprising ! your pictures usually show old buildings! i'm not sure to like very much this kind of architecture, but the main thing is that the place is efficient for those who learn there.
