Chippendale, Blackfriars Public School

The former Blackfriars Public School is located on the corner of Buckland Street and Blackfriars Street, in the inner city suburb of Chippendale. It was designed by George Allen Mansfield and built in 1885 in the the Victorian Free Gothic style. At the time, it was thought that the grand design was due to the government wanting to outshine the St Benedict’s Catholic and St Barnabas’ Anglican schools. It is now part of the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS).
