House, former school and master's house. Late C19. Snecked local stone with rusticated granite quoins and Cocktree ashlar detail; stone stack with ashlar chimneyshaft; slate roof with pierced and crenellated ridgetiles including a terracotta finial. Plan: L-shaped building with the main block facing south-east. Main block has a 2- room plan. The larger right room is the former school room and there is a porch to the entrance near the right end. The left room is the front room of the master's house and it has a gable-end stack. Another room to rear in a block projecting at right angles and the entrance to the former master's house was into this rear room. 2 storeys. Exterior: the front has 2 ground floor and 1 first floor window (a half dormer with hipped roof). All are timber mullion-and-transom casements without glazing bars. At the right end the former school porch is gabled and has a round-headed outer arch containing a plank door with fanlight. The roof is gable-ended and there is, at the left end, a small hipped hood over a former bellcote. The right end wall has a ground floor 3-light window similar to the front ones under a large first floor lunette with hoodmould. Interior has much circa 1900 joinery and other detail. The front garden and the former segregated boys' and girls' playgrounds each side are enclosed with stone rubble walls with rusticated granite coping and square- section granite ashlar gate posts with truncated pyramid caps. This is an unspoilt small but very pretty late Victorian country school and master's house.
