Central entrance with three round headed windows, the outer ones of full height, and one shorter at centre over the doorway. This has plain double doors with a 2-light transom and a plain pilastered surround of a very basic Tuscan order, with THE SCHOOL ROOM on the entablature. The windows are 2 x 3 panes with the centre one only 2 x 1. Round window in pediment, plain low pitch roof to match pediment line.
