The main facade has five rectangular casement windows with dressed stone lintels and angled stone sills. the two west bays form a gable of quarry faced, snecked stonework. The three east bays have rubble construction. Paired ventilation stones beneath verges. Schoolmaster's house is set back at left end with symmetrical facade, voussoirs and lightly tooled quoins. At ground floor the central door with rectangular fanlight has flanking cross-frame casement windows with tooled stone sills. The first floor has three similar equally spaced windows. The pitched roof has been re-tiled with modern materials.
