The Xavarian College for Catholic boys was situated in the the villa of Thomas Attree in Queen's Park. The villa was designed by Charles Barry, best known for his design of the Houses of Parliament, and was completed in 1830. The school was there from about 1909-1966. After the college closed in 1966, the villa became dilapidated and it was demolished in March 1972, despite being classed as outstanding and listed Grade 2.
