The same arrangement of 2 ground floor double lancets and first floor plate-tracery window in the left gable end. Most of the windows still contain rectangular panes of leaded glass but some are replaced by plate glass. The roofs of the main block and masters' house crosswing are gable-ended with shaped kneelers and coping and the roof is steeply pitched. It includes a lead lantern surmounted by a wrought iron weathervane over the school. The entrances to both school and masters house are to rear through a lean to porch in the angles of the wings.

This relatively unmodernised building alongside the churchyard contributes to the scattered but unspoilt centre of Hockworthy parish which includes several other important listed buildings.
