History of the School Site

The seven and a half acre site on which the school stands was bought for £1,900 and a sum of £6,000 was set aside for the buildings.

The School Site and its Buildings

The buildings originally consisted of the Hall, and School House which was built as the Headmaster’s House, and to house the boys who boarded at the school. There were boarders for about the first thirty years of the schools’ existence, with the maximum being 27 in 1894.

Stage one was completed between Autumn 1890 and January 1892, but there was not enough money to connect the two buildings, and the “Cloister” was built in 1899 and paid for by Sir William Marling and his brother. They also provided money for the Gallery at the back of the Hall, which was reached by an iron spiral staircase.

The total cost of building and equipping the school was estimated, in 1905, to be approximately £14,000.
