History

Maelgwyn Council School was built in 1907 (date on building). The detached classroom block was probably the infants' school, and is shown on the 1913 Ordnance Survey.

Exterior

A 1-storey classroom block of pebble-dashed walls and half-hipped slate roof with ridge tiles. The front faces N to the school yard, where there is an outshut that has entrances in the end walls. These have half-glazed boarded doors. The outshut has replacement small-pane casement windows under 2 central gables, and smaller 12-pane sashes R and L. Other windows are mainly original small-pane horned sashes. The main range front has 2 triple 12-pane windows to the L of the outshut, and tripartite 18-pane window to the R under pivoting upper small-pane lights.

The E end wall has a 5-light small-pane window beneath the eaves. The W end wall has a tripartite 12-pane window flanked by single 16-pane windows, each with pivoting upper lights. In the S wall is an advanced gable with two 2-light windows, two 3-light windows to its R and four 2-light windows to its L, all with small-pane replacement glazing in earlier openings.

Interior

Not inspected.
