The school is mostly single storey but as high as the 2-storey masters' house.
Exterior: 3:2-window window front of double-lancet windows with transoms and the
first floor one in the gable-end of the masters house to right, the first floor
window is similar but with a quatrefoil light over making an Early Decorated plate
tracery window. The same arrangement of 2 ground floor double lancets and first

rectangular panes of leaded glass but some are replaced by plate glass. The roofs
of the main block and masters' house crosswing are gable-ended with shaped kneelers
and coping and the roof is steeply pitched. It includes a lead lantern surmounted by

This relatively unmodernised building alongside the churchyard contributes to the
scattered but unspoilt centre of Hockworthy parish which includes several other
important listed buildings.
