Staplefield school

Twenty three children and two teachers of Staplefield school are the subject of this picture. Sturdy footwear was obviously very important at that time. The school was built in 1848 according to the date over the door, and the cost was stated to be about £800, although the buildings have been added to and improved since. The school officially opened in the following year, and Mr and Mrs George Harrington of Nymans were the great benefactors during the first few decades of the school’s life.
