About the event

HISTORY OLD STRUTT SCHOOL

The school was built 1907–09, commissioned by George Herbert Strutt - a  direct descendent of Jedediah Strutt, the famous industrialist  who developed the cotton industry in Belper. Herbert Strutt, was  given the go-ahead to provide a school for the town in March 1907, and the  site he chose for  the new school was opposite the town‘s workhouse, Babington  House. The  school was designed by local architects, Hunter and Woodhouse, in a style that would complement this older building. The school is now a grade II listed building. The school closed in 2008 due to £1.5 million needed in repairs and  maintenance. The building is now used as a community centre which holds  many classes, and has even conducted a wedding and a funeral.

British actors Alan Bates and Timothy Dalton both attended the school.

During the second World War, the school housed hundreds of evacuee children.
