The chapel building today

Built as a chapel, used as a school,
Learning’s important, that was the rule.
Basic in nature, small in its way,
Strict were the lessons before you could play!

One of the earliest places of worship in the village. The school would have been extremely basic, providing help in learning to read the Bible. A later school was set up in the village centre (to the left of Swains Market), and reading classes were later given in the, then new, Wesleyan Chapel. The school moved yet again when the Victorian School was built on the plot where the Community Centre now stands. Finally, in the 1960s, Carrington Junior School was built on Lady Carrington's recreation ground.
