Description

CLYST ST GEORGE WOODBURY ROAD
SX 98 NE
2/14 Lady Seaward Church of England
- Primary School

- II

School with teacher's house attached (now converted into extra classrooms). Dated
1859. Random rubble limestone with Beer stone dressing; gabled-end roofs with
plain and scalloped tiles arranged in patterns and crested ridge tiles, the gable
ends heavily coped. L-shaped plan formed by the main school room (facing north-
east) and the teacher's house (facing south-east), with another teaching room set in
the inner angle; the other 2 sides of a small rear yard are contained within a
perimeter wall with an entrance facing north-west, with privies comprising the
north-west angle.
Main school room (north-east) front: single-storeyed hall (which has received a
false ceiling to minimise heat loss). 2-window range, half dormers, 2 light
casements, leaded, with hood mould, with shield set in diamond in both dormer gable
walls; the legend 'for Heaven and for Earth' is placed between the dormers. Loggia
under tiled pentice roof supported by a timber arcade of trefoil head arches on a
brick plinth, with a gabled porch with wavy bargeboarding. Entrance with depressed
arch. A C20 skylight has been set into the roof between the dormers. The pentice-
roofed loggia returns to left-hand elevation where there is another gabled porch set
centrally with a 2-light pointed window adjacent; 2-light window above with hood
mould, lancet to gable wall. Right-hand elevation of the school room with a
tripartite stone mullioned window with transom; 2 lancets above, each under hood
mould; belcote at gable apex supported by an angel corbel.
Schoolteacher's house (south-east) front: 2 storeys; symmetrical 2-window front;
dormers to main school room; central gabled porch with 2-light casement window to
either side. Tudor-style left-hand end stack. Rear of whole is an informal
composition with 2 rear wings to the house, an external rear lateral stack with
coped set-off to the main schoolroom, and a separate gabled-end latrine block.
Interior: school hall roof intact, with arched brace,collar and king-post. This
school is a carefully designed and varied composition, each of its components
clearly distinguished, and is also in a remarkably unaltered state of preservation.
