Originally built in 1872 by the Church of England, the school was attended by both girls and boys, via separate entrances.

Now a family home, retaining period features, the estate agents said: "This charming detached four-bedroom home confidently fuses period features with modern finishes - an idyllic combination for those searching for a truly exceptional property."
