As it looks today
There has been some form of basic education in the village for many years. It is believed that there were Bible classes in the old Primitive Methodist Chapel
in Chopstick Alley, private lessons in a couple of local houses, plus an early Methodist school in the village centre (to the left of where Swains Market now stands).
These school lessons were later given in the Wesleyan Chapel itself.
This school later moved to the Victorian school building where the Community Centre now stands.
Finally, Carrington Junior School was built on Lady Carrington's recreation ground in the 1960s where it still stands today.
