The school accommodates more than 400 staff and pupils and contains 14 classrooms and a nursery. 11 of its 15 classrooms have doors opening directly to the outside. The front elevation of the school, which faces the road, is clad in dry stone walling, while the use of timber and white render lend a tactile, friendly quality to the building. As the site has a steep north to south fall running across it, the design strategy was to hide the bulk of the school's two-storey games hall by cutting it into the hill.
