In 1857 the National School was built. In 1870, after the Education Act, the Headmaster’s house was enlarged and an Infant’s school was built. In the 1960s the building was altered greatly and in January 1966 the new building as it is now was opened. The school is now a Voluntary School of the Church in Wales
