UPPINGHAM Uppingham School: School Room

GV II* School: 1861-63 by G.E Street. Of coursed squared stone with ashlar dressings. Slate roof with coped gables and decorative ridge tiles. Gothic Revival.

A long range of two storeys: one school room above ground floor divided into classrooms and open loggia. Plinth and string-course beneath first floor windows. East front punctuated by gabled staircase projection with two two-light windows with plate tracery, and a cusped oculus above. Ground floor classrooms lit by pairs of rectangular windows treated externally as pairs of lancets, flanked and divided by small columns with subtly varied stiff leaf capitals, with carved bosses above, enclosed within arches. Four-bay arched loggia carried on stocky cylindrical columns. Buttresses at north corner. First floor lit by pairs of lancets (copied from Oakham Castle) divided by columns and with nail-head decoration. North end has five-light window with idiosyncratic plate tracery. West front has boldly treated external stair, with segmental soffit and massive corbel to upper level of two storey porch. Windows to west front treated slightly more simply than those to east: those to ground floor rectangular, chamfered and with moulded stops, those to first floor as east front but without nail-head decoration. Rainwater heads: one with blind tracery, two dated 1861. Tall lateral stack at south end. Forms one side of quadrangle, completed by New School House and Science Block (qq.v.).
