1843-5 former National School by William Edye, and Master's House added circa 1847 (possibly by G Gwyther) in matching style. Since 1926 a Labour Exchange.
Painted stucco with slate hipped roofs. Pointed windows with C20 plastic glazing, replacing small-paned windows with intersecting tracery heads, the upper half tilting. Basement and main storey to front, two-storey to rear. Main school range has W end stack and two ridge ventilators, five windows (originally 6, the second from left lost) and five flat-headed basement windows. Circa 1930 flat-roofed stucco SW porch. To E, between school and house, recessed entry bay with tall round-arched doorway in Roman Doric columned doorcase, the entablature cutting across arch head slightly, C20 door and fanlight. Master's house has similar two-window front, formerly with two side-wall stacks each side. Blocked basement windows. Main windows were small-paned sashes with intersecting tracery to fixed heads.
An interesting early school building retaining much of its original character despite altered windows. William Edye was Master Shipwright at the Dockyard.
