How magnificent are these “best school buildings”?

January 8, 2015

Maybe it’s because my son is starting a new school this year, and maybe it’s because I love imagining lives in the corridors of schools, or maybe it’s just because I adore amazing school architecture, but this post from The Guardian caught my attention and imagination. It features the best school buildings in the UK, and even though we probably won’t be signing up our kids there any time soon, I’ve put them in a post because they’re just too gorgeous not to.
