Mere - Mere First School,Mere

From 1922, when the British and Church of England schools were amalgamated, this occupied the former British Infant School (built in 1910) in Dark Lane. West Knoyle school closed in 1927 and the infants were transferred to Mere. There were considerable improvements to the building in the 1950s and '60s, after which three classrooms were available. In 1972 the school system in the area was reorganised into three tiers and the infant school became a first school for children aged from 5 - 9 years from Mere and West Knoyle in four classrooms.

The school moved into new accommodation on the Duchy Manor Middle School site in 1992. Children came from Mere and the outlying areas and numbers slowly increased - 77 in 1995, 79 in 2000 and 86 in 2002. In 2003 the educational system is changing back to a two tier one and from September 2004 this will become a primary school, Mere School, taking children from 4 - 11 years, after which age they will travel to Gillingham, Dorset. The school will then take over the Middle School's facilities, including classrooms and the gymnasium.
