The Old School House was built for a cost of £386 and opened its doors to pupils on 3rd February 1873.
The conveyancing of the site was completed in October 1868 and by April 1871 the prolific architect E.H. Lingen-Barker had been appointed and Ingram and Jones Builders had won the tender for the contract to build the school.
