This church school was endowed by Mrs Elizabeth Donnison in 1764 and was typical of the small local charity schools of the 18th century. Its purpose was to educate some 36 poor girls in reading and sewing, and to provide them with clothing and shoes. Two buildings survive, neither now used for educational purposes. The earlier part, with a blank arcade, was built in 1798 as a schoolroom, and in 1827 a three-bay house was added for the mistress. LISTED GRADE 2
