National School, now Cornwall County Council, and perimeter walls and railings. 1846. By J.L. Pearson extended circa 1871, later C19, and early C20. Slatestone rubble, now partly rendered to simulate stone,with granite quoins, copings and dressings for architectural detail. Dry Delabole slate roofs with gable ends. Originally 1 large schoolroom and smaller room adjoining to left (north) fording T- shaped plan plus entrance porch in angle to front. Extended with large schoolroom at right angles to rear, later partly demolished, and enlarged to right (south), finally cloakroom additions to left (north) and further cloakroom to rear (west) of south wing. Tudor style. Single storey. West front has original entrance to left of and slightly projecting from original schoolroom gable end. Entrance porch has 4-centred arched granite doorway with stepped label enclosing shield and surmounted by granite ashlar coped bellcote with original bell in-situ. Schoolroom gable end to right has original 4- light mullioned window with stepped lights and ventilator over. Copings to gable presumably removed when reslated. Interior has original arch-braced roof structures but hidden by later C20 ceilings. Some old doors and dado boarding. Perimeter walls to north, east and west and adjoining market house to south. Original wall survives to west with original granite monolith gate-piers and wrought iron gate. Gate-piers each have cruciform finial of 4 gablets. Walling is ramped to left (north) of gateway. North wall has shaped granite coping with hooped iron railings. East walling has lavatories, formerly earth closets built against it. Walls included for group value. Although altered, enough survives to show how similar this school was to The Old School, qv., at Feock also by Pearson. It also makes an important contribution to the village centre.
