In some of the following blog posts you will find out about the school’s history. Here are some of the most important facts:
· The school has been in Scalford since 1844 and was originally the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel.
· The current building dates from 1902.
· The average number of pupils at that time was 130-140.
· More details can be found in Robert Ingles’s book: ‘A History of Scalford, Leicestershire’.
We also interviewed old teachers, staff and pupils. We looked at the old school log books, the old punishment book, some old newspaper cuttings and some old photographs.
We hope you enjoy learning about our school.
