That's OK by me--it's all of a piece. One of the best complexes built in the "modern" period here is the RIT campus (Rochester Institute of Technology, at Rochester, NY), with various buildings done my many different architects, all working within agreed design guidelines. The campus is all brick. Nothing wrong with that. My largest project, an urban high-rise, was brick (and concrete). Both are organic, earth materials--if one needs that sort of rationale. In purely visual terms, brick has color, texture, and scale--unlike the vapid white stucco of your Salford school building. More on that elsewhere.
