Board school. Datestone 1876. Killas brought to course, granite dressings. Tall
brick lateral stacks.
Plan: E-shaped plan plus porches between the wings. Original plan has large central
schoolroom (for the top class) with folding screen on its right (so that it could be
linked to room on its right) an entrance hall and cloakroom left of the schoolroom,
and at the left and right forward projecting cross wings each containing two rooms
with folding screen between the 2 rooms on the left plus a short central wing
projecting at the front containing a small room (now the staff room). Until the
1950s there was a gallery in the front right-hand room. The plan is unchanged except
that the folding screens have been replaced with fixed partitions and there is a
small C20 extension in front of the left-hand wing. Gothic style details.
Exterior: Single storey. Unaltered elevations except where front wing (left) is
partly obscured by C20 addition. Original doors and windows. Symmetrical 1:1:1:1-bay
front with projecting cross wings with gable ends at left and right, smaller gable
end of central projecting wing and small gable-ended entrance porches betweeen the
wings. Pointed arched opening with hoodmould to each gable end: doorway to each
porch and large 3-light traceried reticulated wooden window to each of the other
gable ends. Ledged doors have shouldered heads with blind tympana over.
Interior: Some original doors and dado panelling; original Gothic style roof
structures obscured by C20 acoustic ceilings.
