School. Dated 1861. Local sandstone rubble with dressed volcanic trap quoins and
Bathstone ashlar details; stone stack with C19 brick chimneyshaft; C20 tile roof
(formerly slate with bands of scallop-shaped slates).
Plan: T-plan building. The main block faces south-west and contains one large
classroom. The entrance porch is on the right (north-east) end. A 1-room plan
block projects at right angles to rear. This rear block maybe secondary. There is
a stack between the two blocks. Both blocks are single storey. The main block has
a symmetrical 5-window front. All the windows are Bathstone, they have 2-centred
arch heads and contain Y-tracery. The original glazing bar pattern survives only in
the tracery. There is a large central 3-light window flanked by pairs of 2-light
windows. There is a gable containing a plaque covered with a coat of arms over the
central window. The roof is gable-ended and all the gables have shaped kneelers and
coping. There is a large 4-light window in the same style as the front ones in the
left end and a similar 2-light window in the rear wall. The entrance porch is on
the right end. It is gabled and entered from the rear through plank double doors.
Its gable-end contains a stone window with an elliptical head, 2 lights with Y-
tracery. Above it is a plaque inscribed AD 1861. The rear block is similar in
style but here the windows are square-headed.
Interior: not inspected.
The front playground is a terrace above the level of the road and it is revetted
with a local stone rubble wall.
This is an attractive small village school. It forms part of a group of listed
buildings in the vicinity of the Church of St Andrew (q.v).
