SE 10 NE FIRTH STREET Shepley 8/33 Shepley First School

II

Former Board School. Dated 1896. Pitch-faced stone with ashlar dressings. Slate roofs. Free Northern Renaissance style. Two- storey central hall surrounded by single storey classrooms, three of which run across the front and have the main entrances between. Central gabled part with large elliptical arched window with slender Ionic colonnettes as mullions, and one transom, surmounted by steep pediment with elaborate carving in tympanum, flanked and surmounted by urns. Classroom to each side forms separate pavilion with pyramidal roof and small clerestory window surmounted by gablet. Between the classrooms are the girls' and boys' entrances with bulbous engaged Ionic columns and tall swan-necked and enriched pediments.

The clerestory of the hall rises behind as a wide gable flanked by octagonal buttresses which terminate in richly carved cartouches and domical cap. The detail resembles the central gable at the front, but with swagged frieze and inscription at apex "1896 BOARD SCHOOLS", topped by small, flat shell-head.

A particularly elaborate example of its type.
