EDUCATION.

A schoolmaster in Sullington was licensed in 1605. (fn. 22) Subscribers on behalf of Sullington and five other parishes were combining to provide a school on the Bell system there in 1818, attended by c. 45 boys and girls. (fn. 23) By 1833, however, one day school had only 5 boys and 7 girls; it was maintained by the parents. (fn. 24) It had lapsed by 1844. (fn. 25) There was apparently another school in 1862. (fn. 26) A Church of England mixed day school with an uncertificated teacher was opened in 1866 in an earlier building in Water Lane given by G. C. Carew-Gibson. It was maintained by subscriptions and pence and attended by 35. (fn. 27) Attendance reached 39 in 1871, but thereafter declined to 33 in 1894 and 25 between 1899 and 1906; it was 30 in 1914. (fn. 28) The school closed in 1918. (fn. 29)
