Undertaken for Stonebridge Homes, the conversion and refurbishment of the former Leeds Girls High School created 36 exceptional quality apartments in an exclusive part of Headingley.
The sympathetic conversion ensured all the original features of the three storey building were maintained, with the outer facade and existing roof repaired, and new sash windows installed throughout. All external works were designed to be in keeping with the rest of the development.
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.

Historic refurbishment project
A piece of history
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.
The Old School House forms part of Victoria Gardens, a development by Stonebridge Homes which also saw a selection of four bedroom homes built on the site.
