Stone ovolo mullioned windows, some also transomed, with bold hoodmoulds; double-ovolo reveals and heads to windows and doors. A simple open belfry of sandstone with a taller brick chimney, attached, is by the school door; the bell was transferred here on demolition of the Church of England school at Handbridge in 1862. Louvred ventilator under a short, square spire at junction of roofs. An extension to the school, probably 1900's, right, with details in keeping, is of harder red brick. Cast iron railings to playground on sandstone plinth; the top rail is double, with cross-bracing. Cf. the railing to Aldford School.
