..... The broader tripartite centrepiece has wide semicircular ground floor windows with stepped reveals, segmental arched 1st floor and flat arched 2nd floor windows recessed in giant pilaster order slightly in antis of wall plane, the pilasters having free Neo-grec Ionic capitals of carved stone that support a dentil frieze which also serves as the lintel of the 2nd floor windows."

A 2016 OFSTED Inspection described the school as, ".... a slightly smaller than the average sized primary school with 201 pupils currently on roll. ... The school is closely linked with All Souls parish church and the associated All Souls Clubhouse church.  .... Ofsted judged the school to be good in March 2016."
