East wing fully glazed on south side with cantilevered iron-railed balconies continued round the projecting bow at the junction of the assembly hall, which has largely plain elevations without windows. Rear has strip windows and continuous glazing to ground storey of hall. West end has 2 large staircase windows flanking higher centre.
