The school is under the management of the trustees. The Parochial School was built in 1841, and is chiefly supported by an endowment of 30 10s., derived from the rent of 16A. 21P. of land, purchased with 100 left by Matthew Sturdivant, in 1604. A sum of 50, left by Hugh Harvey, in 1720, has been applied towards the erection of the School. The school, with master's residence attached, will accommodate 160 scholars, and the infant school, now used as a class-room, will accommodate 60; the average attendance is 123.
