A Brief History of the School

At the time of the school's 100th anniversary, the Headteacher, Mr John Davies, collated a History of the school from its beginnings in 1880.
The following extracts and memories are taken from a booklet that he produced celebrating life at Eastling School between 1881 and 1981.
Each pupil at the school would have been given a copy of the booklet along with a celebratory mug.
