Somerlea Park Junior School was designed by George Henry Widdows in 1924. When first built this must have been architecturally splendid, with its spacious, perfectly symmetrical layout, comprised of a long rectangular courtyard flanked by verandah wings either side, a large hall at each end, the arched entrance with flanking 'lodges' and all linked by covered walkways. Sadly a fire destroyed one whole wing and one hall. (1)
