The School of Science & Art was built in 1890-99, to designs by J.P. Seddon and finished more cheaply by the local architect, W.H.C. Fisher. It is a splendid, iron-framed, very elaborate building in the Gothic style. Between the two floors is a band of foliage containing busts of Victorian scientists and artists: Faraday, Huxley, and Kelvin for science; Barry, Rossetti, Leighton and Turner for the arts.
