From 1960-1666 I worked for an Architect in the North of England whose main body of work was in designing primary schools. At that time, in the post-war state building boom, the Ministry of Education was justly renowned for its publication of a series of Design Guides for primary schools. The office had several projects going at once and because we were a small firm, I was fortunate enough to be able to be the project architect for three of them. One is shown below. The Holy Family School in Rochdale.

As a young man, it was a remarkable opportunity to work in a position of responsibility on such large projects. Later, when I eventually went to School of Architecture to complete my training, I was fortunate to be able to design another primary school, at Lord Wandsworth School in Farnham, Hampshire.

In both instances, the brief required an analysis of progressive teaching practices and the design of spaces to facilitate these.
