Sherston - Hodge's Free School, Sherston

In 1723 Elizabeth Hodges left a bequest for a school at Sherston. This provided daily instruction for seven poor children, aged between 6 and 10 years, of the parish. By the 1830s a schoolmaster was being paid £5 a year to teach the children while in 1846 a schoolmistress was paid £1.10.0d (£1.50p) to teach seven girls. It is likely that the school did not survive for long after this and both the children and funds were transferred to the new National School.
