Squared rubble and brick respectively with graduated stone slate roofs. The hall is open to the roof except for first floor chambers at each end which were domestic accommodation for the master and an usher. Each chamber has a small stair wing which projects at the rear. The 2-storey master's house adjoins at the rear of the right stair wing. Near-symmetrical elevation with central Tudor-arched door, a projecting plinth and stone quoins. The schoolroom is lit at front and rear by two 5- light double-chamfered stone mullion and transom windows and two 4-light mullion windows. The first floor chambers have smaller 3-light mullion windows. All retain leaded casements and a hoodmould continues round the entire building. Dressed stone gable chimney stacks with cornices. 4-light window to each floor of each gable. The stair wings project and are gabled, each having a Tudor-arched door. The master's house has 4 horizontally sliding sashes on 2 elevations and a door in the rear gable at first floor level. Interior: through purlins with wind braces supported on collar and tie-beam roof trusses. A later gallery links the two chambers. The building is an important early example of a building type for which there was little architectural precedent. R.S. Paul and W.J. Smith, A History of Middleton Grammar School 1412-1964, 1965.
