The school was an evacuation School during the war when numbers swelled to bursting point.

Also teachers may find the site useful for ideas for the best places to take their classes on school journeys with many historical and educational atractions listed

Thank you so much to Heathcote family for the lovely gifts we received. Although it's Scarlet's last day we look forward to seeing her and hearing her tales of school when she comes to collect her little sister from Nursery. Have fun Scarlet. We have loved every minute of your time here with us and Pre-school is not going to be quite the same without you xxxx

This was Toddlers today at circle time. They were having great fun with Heather and Liz playing sleeping bunnies. So cute!

Peggy, who lives in the village, recently gave me four old photographs of the school which were in a poor state. I have been able to scan the pictures and retouch them to make them clearer. Thank you Peggy for trusting me with them.

Reviews cannot be submitted anonymously through, we require the name and telephone/email of the reviewer and the option to share these with the care provider, so that we can properly authenticate reviews.

Quite a few people who still live in the village attended the school and we have even had visits from people from as far away as Canada who have come to see their old school. There are several people in the village who worked in the Nursery and remember bringing in the frozen bottles of milk and putting them in front of the fires to defrost so the children could drink them.
