Opened in 1865 with Henry Lough as the teacher. It was then closed for some time after being severely flood damaged in 1868. When it finally re-opened there was a dispute between the new teacher and parents, regarding his teaching and discipline methods, and the school was closed again.

The school finally closed in1951 due to falling numbers.
