The Block 5 residential project will be undertaken for Stonebridge Homes and is due to commence in September 2016. The scheme will involve the refurbishment and conversion of the existing red brick former Girls High School into a selection of apartments.

With works planned over a period of 52 weeks, the conversion will ensure all of the original features of the three storey building are maintained, and will create 36 stunning and historic apartments in Headingley.

Founded in 1876, Leeds Girls High School was originally built as an independent all-girls school until its closure in 2008. The historic building was later used as the set of ITV medical TV series Monroe and starred British actor James Nesbitt.

Dave Totty, Contracts Manager at Henry Boot Construction, said: “We are very pleased to continue our working relationship with Stonebridge Homes on this prestigious residential refurbishment project and look forward to delivering quality living space in the heart of Headingley, Leeds.”

This was reiterated by Carol Gunn, Head of Sales & Marketing at Stonebridge Homes: “The Leeds Girls High School buildings are such a feature of the area, being iconic designs and in such a prestige location. In partnership with Henry Boot Construction we are ensuring they are restored to their former glory whilst delivering much-needed high quality housing in Leeds.”
