Shrouded in scaffolding but on target to reopen in September, the classic victorian building, designed by local architect Thomas Simpson, is being given a new lease of life. Even better news is that it is will not live on as an awkwardly converted block of apartments, or worse, but as a modernised building serving the community as originally intended, in the field of education.

Thanks to an initiative by the Brighton Society the building is now Grade II listed by English Heritage.
