Peakirk Cum Glinton C. E. Primary School has a wonderful history which we hope you’ll enjoy reading all about.

Anne Ireland
In 1711, Anne Ireland left £100 to help fund a school in the parish. At this time part of the church was used for schooling.

Foundation of a New School
It is 1845. Victoria has been Queen for eight years, Robert Peel is her Prime Minister and there are three more years before revolution whirls through Europe, sweeping away the last of the French monarchy. In Glinton, a small village in what was then Northamptonshire; the foundation of the new village school was laid.

Opening on Monday, 18th May 1846, the managers aimed to enrol children from Peakirk, Glinton and the surrounding villages.

 Mr. Lord was criticised for expressing personal opinions in the logbook.  After one critical inspection he writes:

"I have not entered every punishment inflicted during the year in the log book.  Last year we worked about one and a half-hours over the timetable, this year one hour per day.  I think progress would have been made with more severe punishment and less keeping in…I am sorry to add that this has been the most unhappy year of my life as a Teacher…If my day as a Teacher is ended, and as the Government have taken possession of almost every elementary school in the country, I ask for a free passage for myself and family to one of the Colonies - say South Africa or New Zealand."

Sadly for the children of the school, this was not forthcoming and William Lord continued flogging until he was taken ill early in 1891. Shortly after, he died and was buried in Glinton churchyard.  Mr. Wood took over until the appointment, in June of the same year of Cyrus Fordham as Mr. Lord's successor. 

The end of the first fifty years of the school's history saw the first extension to the building.  The infant classroom was opened in1895, removing pressure on the overcrowded main school room.  Kate Ashling was now on the teaching staff along with two monitors, Jessie Howell, who was to remain at the school for over fifty years, and M.E. Palmer.  A happier time for the school was approaching.
