The Pochin School, Barkby
The Pochin School, Barkby
The school takes its name from the Pochin family of Barkby Hall who founded the school in the 18th century. The nearer part of the building dates from the early part of the 19th century and incorporated the headmaster's house and a cottage for his assistant. The main schoolroom beyond was built in 1869, and the dwelling part was incorporated into the school in the 1960s and 70s. The school remained in the ownership of the Pochin family until the implementation of the 1944 Education Act when it transferred to the Local Education Authority. The buildings shown in this view are Listed Grade II; the Listing does not include the later expansion of the school.
Listed Buildings and Structures
Listed buildings and structures are officially designated as being of special architectural, historical or cultural significance. There are over half a million listed structures in the United Kingdom, covered by around 375,000 listings.
Listed status is more commonly associated with buildings or groups of buildings, however it can cover many other structures, including bridges, headstones, steps, ponds, monuments, walls, phone boxes, wrecks, parks, and heritage sites, and in more recent times a road crossing (Abbey Road) and graffiti art (Banksy 'Spy-booth') have been included.

In England and Wales there are three main listing designations;
Grade I (2.5%) - exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important.
Grade II* (5.5%) - particularly important buildings of more than special interest.
Grade II (92%) - nationally important and of special interest.

There are also locally listed structures (at the discretion of local authorities) using A, B and C designations.

In Scotland three classifications are also used but the criteria are different. There are around 47,500 Listed buildings.
Category A (8%)- generally equivalent to Grade I and II* in England and Wales
Category B (51%)- this appears generally to cover the ground of Grade II, recognising national importance.
Category C (41%)- buildings of local importance, probably with some overlap with English Grade II.

In Northern Ireland the criteria are similar to Scotland, but the classifications are:
Grade A (2.3%)
Grade B+ (4.7%)
Grade B (93%)
