Some of the school buildings

The Church Farm Industrial School for Boys was opened in East Barnet in 1860.[1] The first superintendent was Lieut.-Col. Gillum.[2][3] It once provided the choristers for the nearby church.[4] Some of the buildings are now used as the Oakhill Campus of Mill Hill County High School, other parts as a leisure centre and others as housing.

Several buildings in the grounds of the school are listed with Historic England.[5][6][7]
