Bay 5 has channelled pilasters framing a Doric doorpiece with panelled doors and a semi-circular fanlight chanelled arch over the entablature; above a semi-circular headed window with apron and bracketted open pedimented head, the whole crowned by an open segmental pediment incorporating tablet reading 'Baptist Schools 1912'. The words "Newnam Memorial" incised into string band over entrance doorway. The interior not inspected.
