County Council Junior School, former Board School. 1878-1881 by Silvarus Trevail.
Dressed granite with granite ashlar dressings. Welsh slate roofs with bands
of fish-scale slates and coursed ridge tiles with small terracotta finials over
the gables. Three gable-ended parallel ranges with linking ranges at the south
front. The central range is shorter and has wider gable and a porch in the
angle to the right with small bell tower above with battered first stage with
gablet and two light lancet louvred bell-openings and with moulded string and
cornice above, originally surmounted by a slated pyramidal spire. The central
gable has tripartite gothic windows with double-chamfered pointed arches with
hoodmoulds and pierced blind tympana and with shouldered arch lights below in
the flanking gables tripartite shouldered and lights within single pointed arch
with blind tympana with small shield of the area. Similar gable on east and
west side. All the gables, except the centre, have barge-boards treated as
exposed trusses with braces to the collars and king-posts, and paired wooden
brackets in place of kneelers. The windows on the front linking ranges and
at the sides have straight heads with stopped chamfered jambs, some paired with
central mullion. All sashes, without glazing bars. Continuous granite weathered
cill course and plinth and small buttresses with set offs at the corners and
front. Moulded granite ridge stacks with set-offs and weathered caps. The
plans for the school were exhibited at the 1878 Pairs Exhibition and afterwards
in the International Exhibition held in Melbourne and Sidney, Australia.
