I attended a secondary school in London whose beautiful Victorian Gothic exterior belied its, at times, rather unfriendly interiors. Draughty, high-ceilinged classrooms. Freezing, shed-like changing rooms. It wasn't Dickensian, but it was a somewhat uncompromising environment. A rigid architectural programme that reflected
a rigid education. 
 
New school projects, thankfully, are an altogether more flexible affair. A diversity of spaces designed to offer a more individualised learning experience. Cool schools!
