Chilwell Sixth Form School
Chilwell Sixth Form School
Built as Chilwell Comprehensive School, the building on the left was opened as the Lower School and is Grade II listed. Listing number 1441692. Chilwell Lower School was built in 1975-1976 to the designs of Michael Tempest, directing architect, and Roger Bearsmore, project architect, at Nottinghamshire County Council. It was designed as the lower school component of a 9 form entry mixed comprehensive school catering for 540 pupils aged 11 to 13. Like the main comprehensive school which was built in 1970-1971, the Lower School was built in CLASP Mark V. The building of schools and other public buildings in Nottinghamshire after 1955 is closely tied up with CLASP the Consortium of Local Authorities Special Programme which was launched in 1957. The County Architect Donald Gibson devised a method of building schools using a lightweight prefabricated system that was economical and could withstand mining subsidence.
