School. Circa 1860-70 with later C19 additions.
Grey Devonian limestone rubble with dressed limestone quoins and Bathstone
dressings; the later C19 addition is snecked limestones. Slate roof with
gabled ends; the gable ends have stone coping with gablets of the apexes
with finials. Crested ridge tiles and small metal ventilator on ridge.
Plan: A long rectangular plan containing one large school room open to the
roof, the right end has been extended. It was a mixed school and there are
2 porches on the front therefore the school room may have been divided

phase was the building of a wing at the rear of the right-hand end in the
later C19. Victorian Gothic style.
Exterior: Single storey. South front has a gabled porch to left of centre

hand side and a lean-to porch in the angle on the right-hand side with a
band of seven ogee quatrefoil lights on the front and a cusped ogee-head
moulded doorway on the right side. Incorporated in the angle on the left
side of the gabled porch is a large lateral chimney stack with set offs and
a tall ashlar shaft with a moulded cap. To the left a buttress set back
from the left-hand corner with set offs. The left gable end has a large
pointed arch window, the stone tracery and mullions have been removed, and
above there is a small ventilation slit with cusped head.
