The adjacent school was built in 1817 but the School House bears the date 1851 and was built in conjunction with the enlargement of the school by John Lloyd.


A 2-storey house of grey rubble stone with larger quoins to L, and a slate roof with brick stack to the L. A single 4-pane horned sash window with stone sill is in each storey, and with wedge lintel in the lower storey. Between the windows is a datestone. To the R is a flat-roofed stone porch over the entrance doorway. To the L, set back, is a block in a similar style, with brick stack to the L, and a single small-pane ground floor window. The rear retains a 16-pane horned sash window on the upper floor. The other windows are now casements. To the front are contemporary iron railings with spear finials, and stone gatepiers with iron gate.
