Stone-coped gables with shaped finials. Stone chimney with 2 attached octagonal flues. Louvred dormer ventilator in roof of school hall. Mullioned windows, some arched; individual lights to straight-headed windows are also arched; patterned leaded glazing. Niche in front gable carries crowned figure teaching a child, in stone. 2 entrance doorways with shaped boarded doors on ornate wrought iron hinges, in arched stone openings.
