11/26 St. Giles R. C. Primary
School

GV II

School. 1841-6 by Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin. Red brick with stone dressings; tiled roof with crested ridge and verge parapets. Castellated triple-
shafted stack to right-hand apex. Two-storey, six-bay front divided
by stone-capped two-stage buttresses with three-light stone dressed
windows to upper floor over four-light to ground floor, all with trefoil
heads; slightly set away from the right hand end: a bell tower with
pyramidal two-stage lead roof with timber framing to the bellcote and
trefoil-headed window to first floor. The entrance bay projects under
a low catslide roof between school and tower. Pent roof running flush
to right clasps front of tower. The north front is highly assymetrical
and in contrast to the body of the building. A Tudor-arch first-floor
window is set over pointed-arch entrance with doors set well back into
reveal. W. G. Short: Pugin's Gem: A History of St. Giles Catholic
Church, Cheadle, Staffordshire 1981, p.19.
