5/44 Sir John Offley Primary School

GV II

School. 1875 and 1887. Coursed sandstone blocks on high chamfered plinth with ashlar dressings and quoins, machine tiled roofs with ornamental cresting. Asymmetrical, multiform plan in C17 Vernacular style. Single-storey hall and classrooms lit by large 8-light mullion window in projecting gable to left and by 2 gabled half-dormers to right, beneath which are 2 lower, hip-roofed porches (1887); the lower range against the right-hand gable end is also of this date; 2 prominent tapering external stacks with round shafts and moulded capping, one to the main range and one to the 1887 addition. The principal entrance is to the rear through a mid-C20 red brick addition. The school owes its original endowment to the will of Sir John Offley of Madeley Manor (died 1658) and the C19 building was financed by Hungerford, Baron of Crewe (cf Nos. 1-11, Station Road [Offley Almshouses]). B.O.E., p.200.
