One of the first public schools to be founded in the 19th Century - built from the proceeds of the Bishop Barrow Trust it opened in August 1833 and still continues, very successfully, today. However this page concentrates on the 19th Century aspects.

Canon Hinton Bird discusses what in his opinion was the somewhat dubious circumstances in which money allocated for a theological seminary to train Manx priests became used to fund a public school, most of whose pupils have been non-Manx with no connection with the Island.

Proposed Design from 1831 Oswald's Guide - drawn by J. Welch

The building was designed by E. Welch and J. Hansom though J. Welch claimed to have redesigned the tower after his brother left the Island; later rebuilt to a somewhat different design in 1844 after a disasterous fire.

Many building extensions have taken place over the last 160 years. The roof of the college was raised in 1892 to add another 5 dormitories at the expense of damage to the facade. (5 years and 1101 days ago)

The University of Canterbury, founded in 1873 in two rooms of the public library, moved to the gracious 19th century gothic-styled buildings which now comprise the Arts Centre, in 1876. Its first building was the clock tower in Worcester Street designed by the pre-eminent Gothic Revival architect, Benjamin Mountfort, and was completed in 1877. The rest of the stone buildings, designed by a number of prominent Canterbury architects such as Samuel Hurst Seager and W B Armson .
These beautiful buildings are now in danger of being demolished due to recent earthquake damage. (5 years and 1098 days ago)
