School, now video film library. Late C19. Ham stone squared and boasted, with Bath stone ashlar dressings; plain clay
tile roof with bands of fish scale between coped gables with finials. I-plan, one storey; South elevation of 5 bays, of
which bays 1 and 5 have projecting gables, which are linked by a flat roofed colonnade having 5 pointed arches without
labels on squat Norman style circular columns with varied carved capitals. To bays 1 and 5 are 5-light chamfer
mullioned and transomed windows with square labels, under small rectangular gable vents: middle bays have quasi-dormers
above the colonnade with 2-and 3-light mullioned and transomed windows, all under square labels. Rear elevation
