The old Teacher’s Quarters, now referred to as “The School House”, have been on the school grounds since 1896 with the original two room building still part of the extended house. The building has been refurbished and includes a classroom; a history area; and living quarters comprising a living area, bedroom and kitchen.
This is National Trust listed and the original two rooms which made up the living quarters are part of the extended building. The school classroom will be in a room that was added in 1910 but altered in the 1970s; the original living room and bedroom have been furnished in Victorian style; and the kitchen which was added in the early 1900s will be used for cooking activities.

- Find out what life might have been like in a Victorian classroom
