St George’s School
See how a derelict School can be transformed by the involvement of a BPT and returned to the local authority. Meet the Architect and client to discuss the process and sustainability of the building.
St. George’s old National school has been identified as one of the earliest buildings in Llandudno, having occupied the prominent Church Walks site since the Schoolmasters house and original School building were completed in 1846.
The project comprised the restoration of the Grade II Listed Old St. George’s National School, and its conversion for use by the County Borough Council. The project sought to transform the vacant derelict school building into a new Early Years Learning Centre housing a nursery, toy library, and resources facility, whilst addressing the need for modern ancillary facilities.
Despite proposals being drawn up for the possible demolition of the derelict school, it’s future was secured following the refurbishment and conversion project undertaken by Llandudno Seaside Buildings Preservation Trust and Conwy County Borough Council.
