School for Fishermen
School for Fishermen
The former School for Fishermen [Listed grade2] of 1914 is by the first City Architect Joseph Hirst in a mixture of Neo-Georgian and Edwardian Baroque styles, with an unusual flat roof behind a high parapet from which students practised signalling. The purpose of the school was to train boys joining the burgeoning fishing industry and ensure that they continued their education between trips. It later became a general nautical college and is now a resource centre for the Youth Service, providing for schoolgirl mothers.
