Darlington, The Old School

The Old School is located along Maze Crescent and is part of the University of Sydney campus, in the inner city suburb of Darlington. It was originally the Darlington Public School designed by George Allan Mansfield and built in 1878 in the Gothic Revival architectural style. The building was transferred to the university in 1975 and renovated in 1978 for use by the Department of Music and as a theatre workshop. The view from the other side can be seen here.

  6. Maybe it was used as a church as well as a school. Like the reflection in that window.

  8. Quite a lot of charm in this appearance of this old school... nice to see arches at windows, in the late gothic style like in many of the photo instants shared by you in the lovely series of old buildings!! and very well preserved...
