The school constisted of a large main classroom used for the juniors and a smaller classroom for the infants. Both rooms were very high and had an A frame apex ceiling.
The windows were high from the ground, presumably so that the children couldn't look out and be distracted! Gerry is leaning on the fire guard around the old fireplace, which we still have, though have removed the coke burner. This supplied a few old radiators with the heat. In winter when it was particularly cold it could take 1cwt of coke a day to heat the building.
