The school’s head teacher was Miss Norah Woodman who taught her pupils to count using beads. Families had to pay less than 1p per child per month to go towards her salary of £25 a year. At 9am every morning the children would march round the playground to salute the Union Flag.
Tyneham School closed in 1932 and its 13 pupils had to travel to other schools in the local area.We are currently compling more information and photographs of the school which will be uploaded in the coming weeks.
