School. Dated 1896. MATERIALS: coursed limestone rubble with rusticated bands and some blue lias and red sandstone decoration. Crested slate roofs with obelisk finials to most gable ends. PLAN: complex plan of 5 forward-facing gables and cross gables. EXTERIOR: Gothic Revival style. Single storey to the front, 2 storeys to the rear where ground slopes down. A gabled block to the left has a pierced cross in the apex above a rusticated semi-circular relieving arch with an ogee quatrefoil to the centre, above 2 tall rusticated pointed-arches each with an ogee quatrefoil above 2-light stone-mullioned and transomed windows. The left return to this block has a similar gable to the centre with a buttress to the centre of the windows. A similar gable to the centre front has smooth red and yellow sandstone arches, and colonnettes to the window jambs. This is flanked by 2 lower stepped-forward gabled entrances, each with a door toward the centre and 2 trefoil-headed leaded lights to the sides; the planked doors are under segmental-pointed arches with round stops to the hoodmoulds. A similar gable to the far right has a 4-light stone-mullioned window with C20 louvred glazing. All 3 forward gables have a rusticated band at lintel level and a platband above; that to the left has the date 1896. INTERIOR not inspected but noted as having arch-braced roofs and other original features. A late example in this robust Gothic Revival style, but a visually impressive and vigorous design.
