Extant but vacant.

The school was built on a property named 'Ellerslie', and took its name. It closed in 1989, and the building was proclaimed a national monument that same year. Tafelberg School later occupied the premises, but the buildings have stood vacant since 2010, while a long-drawn-out dispute rages as to their future use and development.
