Building was initiated and completed during the time of Rector Mr Leslie James Goddard, the longest serving Rector of school from 1934 - 1964.
The Building faces the Top Field and has
- The old Band Room and the Senior wing Table tennis room on the ground floor,
- The Tuck shop called “Blackies”, the Master’s Club room and the Rector’s Box to witness matches on Top Field on the First Floor.
- Music Rooms are located on the Second Floor of this building.
Usually the sixth forms only access the blackies via the front entrance whereas the junior students use the side staircase for this purpose, except when with parents or visitors. There's also a scoreboard here used during the cricket season for the audience to track the scores.

Obstacle CourseTop Field. With the Howard Block coming up in 2001, this course was dismantled for the building.
During the time of Mr. Gibbs, there was no clock in the tower. Just a hole.
|I never managed to install a clock in the hole provided, nearly, though, when a rich prospective parent seemed interested but, after I took him up, only to find a boy having a quiet smoke there, he never appeared again.|
|-David S. Gibbs, Rector 1964-72|
