Redlynch - Morgan's Vale and Woodfalls C. of E. VA Primary Sc

In 1869 a National School for infants was built near the top of Morgan's Vale Road. As there was no Anglican church in this area it was consecrated and used for worship on Sundays until the Church of St. Birnius was built in 1896. The school has always retained close links with this church and they are adjacent to one another. By 1905, when the school came under Wiltshire County Council and was known as Morgan's Vale School, there was accommodation for 132 children but the average attendance was 46 in 1906. From the 1920s the school took older children and was an elementary (all age) school. In 1938 the attendance was 57. By the early 1960s the school had become a junior school and from 1964 pupils aged over 11 years went to Downton Secondary Modern School or to one of the Salisbury schools. In 1975 there were 121 infants and juniors at the school. The school still has close ties to the church and in 2000 work began on a substantial extension to the school, backed by the Diocesan Board of Education. In 2002 there were 117 children, aged between 4 and 11 years at the school.
