Description

A study by social historian Rachel Young in the 1990s analysed the remarkable log books of Castle Acre School and concluded:

“this was often a problem school with low academic standards [caused by] the poverty of most of the children.  Irregular attendance, early leaving, too few staff, too little money and often ill-maintained building all contributed to poor results.  But determined, able, long-stay teachers could and did effect considerable improvements.”

Mary-Anne Garry has followed up Rachel Young’s studies and researched fully the history of this village school and it makes fascinating reading, not only for those who live in Castle Acre but for all who are interested in the history of education.
