ACP, or Architects Co-Partnership, was founded in 1939 and continues to this day. The practice embraced an approach to architecture known as the European Modern Movement, which used modern technology and saw the building as a machine, with form following function. ACP was responsible for some of the 'Festival of Britain' buildings in the early 1950s and many of their remaining buildings are now listed.

Baylis Old School is typical of their work of this era: strong horizontal elements and structural expression using a limited palette of components and materials. The aesthetic is paired back, with unnecessary ornamentation rejected in favour of structural honesty.

The project architect for Lilian Baylis School, Bob Sealy, has now retired, but has been consulted on proposals. He has responded positively to the notion of converting the school buildings into residential use. ACP has also kindly allowed access to their archives.
