The building, a rectangular block, consists of some two storey accommodation sandwiched between the large equal volumes of the single storey chapel and play hall, with all accommodation reached from a central internal roof-lit through-two-floors' staircase hall. Rooflights are also used in the chapel & play hall and supplement the classroom side lighting.
