We worked with the local community to put in a bid for the Irving Building. The much-loved Victorian school building was owned by Cowley St John Parochial Church Council, a local educational charity. It was in full use until July 2015 for forms one to three of St Mary and St John Primary School. In July 2015 the building was closed and in September 2015, these forms joined the rest of the school, at another nearby site on Meadow Lane. Read more on the project page here.
