English Infants' School
Infants' School, dated 1856, on the German Lutheran graveyard closed in 1853. Stock brick with
polychromatic brick details, slate roof. Two-and-a-half by three bays, two storeys. Each floor is
a single room, the upper reached by a long, gently rising stone stair to left. Wooden casements with
wrought-iron opening lights, those to the ground floor square, those to the upper floor with
pointed arches under red and black gauged brick heads; each pair is grouped between pilasters with
banded red brickwork continuing as courses through building. Gable with polychromatic diapering
and stone trefoil. Date plaque in pointed arch over entrance, which has arched door under
segmental head. The upper floor is believed to have a king-post roof hidden under C20 false
Included for its historical interest and group value, the building makes a picturesque complement
to the later red-brick school for older boys and girls alongside.
