Description
Detached five-bay single-storey school, dated 1821, with shallow entrance breakfront. Pitched slate roof with eaves course. Roughcast lime rendered walls with cut limestone date plaque to breakfront. Pointed arch window openings with intersecting timber traceried double timber sliding sash six-over-six pane windows, most behind clear corrugated plastic, with limestone sills.

Appraisal

The simple design of this school is enhanced by its pointed arch windows with decorative tracery, possibly reflectling the former windows of the adjacent church. Unusually there are no windows to the rear elevation. Now in a derelict state this school forms part of a group with the church, medieval church and graveyard.
