A village school and schoolmaster's house which dates from about 1840, with the schoolroom apparently of one build, although the school at St Arvans is said not to have opened until 1873. The building is now wholly in domestic use.


The building is constructed of coursed grey sandstone rubble with Bath stone ashlar dressings and a replacement slate roof. Single storey schoolroom to the right with a two storey master's house to the left. The house is three windows wide, the left hand one, which is set slightly back, is probably a later, perhaps modern, extension, athough built in character. The windows are all cross-framed casements in painted stone surrounds. The two right hand bays of the house are a balanced elevation with central gabled porch which also is a modern alteration. Three red brick stacks. To the right the school-room is gabled to the front and has a large 3-light 2-transom window. Small quatrefoil ventilator in the gable which has plain bargeboards. Rear elevation not seen.


Not available for inspection at resurvey.
