A village school was built in 1853 and is now Bishop Carpenter Church of England primary school.[3] The school celebrated its sesquicentenary in 2003 with an open day at which it invited all old pupils to come back and share memories, and also the day was combined with a Village History Day which showed how the village has developed since records began.
