The Old School c.1910
is a Grade II listed building, built in 1859 and still in use as a village school right up until 1976.
It is the oldest former local authority school building within the city of Hull still used for educational purposes
The Old School today
which also houses a small museum,
is ideal for those smaller, more 'homely' family gatherings,
say for a Silver or Golden Wedding, family re-union, or even for a smaller funeral tea.
Around two dozen can easily sit down for tea in the main hall, and use the tables in the 'tearoom' to lay out a 'serve yourself' buffet.
The Main Hall, shown here left, hosting one of our frequent Family History events. The hall can be configured with tables down the centre if required. We can also deploy a projector screen at either end, with seats for 40 viewers.
The Tea Room, shown here to the right, can likewise be configured to different arrangements. Here with tables in the centre for a large buffet, with plenty of separate seating around the sides.
Each room can be used to complement the other.
Please note that the museum room itself, not shown here, is separately locked and is not part of the hire.

The kitchen facility includes a main oven, a microwave oven, fridge, the use of several teapots, kettles, and a full range of crockery. Between the kitchen and the dining room/tea room is a serving hatch. It's very easy to do your own catering in this kitchen, indeed, the museum volunteers do so regularly for special events and weekends.
