Schoolrooms erected 1816/7. Ham stone ashlar in a Quasi-collegiate manner, Welsh
slated roof between coped gables, each gable crowned by short stone chimney
stack. 2-storey 5-bay facade to Church Street, with a big arched recessed porch
in Tudor style centrally with steps up, and plinth all around; tall 4-light
mullioned and transomed windows with flat heads and linked label moulds at both
levels, with string course to first floor cill level and stone eaves moulding.
On the return Church Path elevation are the main gable, a short extension and a
smaller gable: the main gable has corbelled projecting chimney stack as main
feature, flanked by matching 3-light mullioned and transomed windows at each
level, the centre light of the first floor windows being raised; the windows are
repeated in the one-bay extension and second gable (first floor only), beneath
this last pair of pointed arched entrance doorways: above and between them a
