Pardes House Grammar School, Finchley
Pardes House Grammar School, Finchley
This school building was originally constructed in 1860 for Christ's College, Finchley, a church of England school that had been founded in 1857 on the opposite side of the road. This imposing building was constructed to designs by Edward Roberts. After four decades as a private school, Christ's College was taken over by Middlesex County Council in 1902, becoming the Council's first grammar school. In 1927 it lost its links to the Church of England and in 1978 it merged with the Alder School in East Finchley. This new combined school operated for a while on split sites but in 1991 concentrated its operations on a site in East End Lane. The building, after a period of disuse, became Pardes House Grammar School, a Jewish Orthodox institution.
