2/157 Woodbury Primary School - GV II

School and attached headmaster's house. 1871, designed by R M Fulford. Brick with Beerstone and sandstone dressing; gabled-end and half-hipped tiled roofs. School with main range and rear wing, the headmaster's house forming a cross wing at the south-east or right-hand end of the main range. The latter is of 2 storeys; the school itself is of a tall single storey open hall type, standing only a little lower than the house. Left-hand (north-west) gable end dominated by a 4-light window, each light trefoil headed, with a superordinate arch with alternating red and white stone voussoirs, the tympanum punched through with a single quatrefoil; clasping buttresses; projecting weathered plinth. Rear wing with lancets and partially dismantled lateral stack with off-sets. The master's house, south-west gable end facing the street, half-hipped roof which is sprocketed to the left-hand side to cover a side entrance and the stairwell, the latter lit at the gable end by a 2-light pointed window set between the 2 storeys, the string course rising to form the hoodmould; 2 light window to 1st floor, each light trefoil headed; similar 3-light window to ground floor, all 3 windows asymmetrically placed. Right-hand side elevation of house with 2 external lateral stacks, corbelled out at 1st floor level, and two 2-light casement windows that break the eaves line. The school is dramatically situated on a prominent corner site; it is a fine, markedly asymmetrical design and remains an impressive building despite the partial dismantling of the tall Tudor-style stacks, and the addition of a late C20 single storey flat-roofed brick extension that masks the original principal (south-west) front.
