It is linked on the left by two semi-circular brick arches, one giving access through to the yard, and the other forming a window opening for a school office, in the left hand wing. There is a 4 light timber mullioned window in the first floor of the gable end of this wing and below it is a pair of French windows, flanked by a single light wooden casement. Wide overhanging eaves with exposed purlins in the gable. On the outer slope of the roof are 3 dormer windows, 2 smaller ones flanking a central larger dormer. These have 3 lights and 4 lights respectively. The right hand wing has a similar set of dormers on its outer slope.
