Central gabled bay with transomed window of 3 cusped lights, flanking single lights, in chamfered arched recesses; carved band above with raised lettering: 'LEEDS/ BOARD SCHOOLS', trefoil panel above; gable copings, bud finial; at the junction with the main ridge a tall square-section bellcote or ventilator flue with carved openwork sides, lead-covered octagonal spire with finial above.

Richard Adams was architect of Leeds Board Schools 1873-1886 at a period when there was pressure on the Board to build schools quickly for the rapidly increasing population. He was responsible for 35 schools, of which about 16 remain; this is a fine example of his Gothic design for larger single-storey schools.
