This school was built in 1866 from investments left by a former vicar in 1668. The Rev. William Chaloner bequeathed a certain amount of money for the education of boys of the village. A school was conducted in an old room near the church and boys were admitted at the age of seven, but in 1866 it removed to a new building.
