Woodhouse College is a further education establishment which accepts students between the ages of 16 and 19.

After the First World War, the former residence of ornamental plasterer Thomas Collins (1735–1830) in the Woodhouse area of Finchley was reconstructed; the house became The Woodhouse School in 1923. A blue plaque commemorating Thomas Collins is on the wall outside the present college office. The school coat of arms with the motto ’Cheerfulness with Industry’ is still displayed above the stage in the college hall.

During the Second World War, the school continued to function while the basement was used by the ARP service. The names of the forty-seven former pupils who died during WWII are recorded in a hand-illuminated Roll of Honour which hangs at the foot of the main staircase near the front entrance to the college.

The Roll of Honour also records the names of the four houses of the old grammar school: Gordon, Livingstone, Nightingale and Scott.

Post by Lynne Hqapgood: Hutton Grove, N12

I have a question rather than a comment. When was 80 Hutton Grove built? My parents, Eddie and Margaret Hapgood, lived at 80 Hutton Grove from 1934 until sometime during the war,and I would love to know if they moved into a new-build house during the big suburban expansion in the 1930s. Does anyone out there know?! I visited very recently to see the road and the frontage of the house for the first time.

Woodhouse Road, N12

Woodhouse Road is the main road between North Finchley and Friern Barnet.

It ran along the northern edge of Finchley Common and by 1814 it was known as North Colney Hatch Road, Summers Lane being South Colney Hatch Road.

The Woodhouse area began with three houses called the Woodhouses sometime before 1655. In the mid 18th century there was a single house of this name and it was home to the well-known plasterer Thomas Collins. It was reconstructed in 1888 and in 1925 it became Woodhouse Grammar School (Now Woodhouse College).

A mansion was built on the site of Wood House between 1784 and 1798, becoming the centre of an estate.

East of the Great North Road the Churchfield estate, next to Christ Church, was divided for 50 medium-sized houses in 1900. The Woodhouse estate on both sides of Woodhouse Road, stretching from the Great North Road into Friern Barnet, had already been offered in building lots.

Finchley Urban District Council bought most of the 36 acre estate in 1915, building some 100 houses then and starting another 200 in 1919.

Most building ceased during the First World War and by 1919 houses were in short supply. The council continued building at Woodhouse Road and provided another 50 houses in 1928 and 72 in 1930. All building in the 1930s accorded with the council’s town planning scheme of 12 houses to an acre where the site fronted a main road and 10 to the acre elsewhere.

Woodhouse Road retains its large mid-Victorian house, a school, with municipal and other housing of the 1920s to the south.
