Shernborne Village

 

Shernborne is a village and parish 12 miles north east of the town of King's Lynn in the county of Norfolk. Together with the villages of West Newton, Flitcham, Anmer and Wolferton it forms part of The Royal Sandringham Estate.
 
The village has several focal buildings including The church of St. Peter and St. Paul, Shernborne club, Shernborne Hall and of course the main focal point, Shernborne School which stands proud overlooking the village green.
 
The school was opened in 1877 and through the years served the local population, it was divided into two teaching spaces. 'The hall' for older students and an 'Infants room'. Adjoined to the school was the headmistress' cottage. In the early 1900's the average attendance was 26 pupils. It was somewhat under utilised as the school could accommodate 36. In 1901 there were only 15 infants. The headteacher at this time was Annie Mitchell. Pupils of the school came from neighbouring villages such as snettisham, Dersingam, Bircham and Red Farm Barns. In 1966 the school closed and pupils then attended other schools in the local area.
