of T J Bailey, Schools Architect. It is of 4-storeys in red brick with stone
dressings and tiled roof and is of complex symmetrical form on the entrance

2-storey blocks. The blocks rise into round towers having domes surmounted by open
octagonal domed lanterns with needle finials.
A canted porch fills the angle between the centre and each wing. It is framed by
piers with clasping buttresses and has an applied segmental doorcase on corbelled
columns.
A prominent cornice-band separates the second floor from a high attic with
elaborately glazed sashes and crowning cornice to the 4 centre bays.

pyramidal roofs separate the entrance elevation from recessed 6-bay return
elevations which have round-headed ground floor windows within radially rusticated
heads.
Corbelled chimney breasts set laterally on the entrance elevation rise into tall
