The History of Deddington Schools

Buffy Heywood's article provides an excellent summary of this subject.

Deddington Primary School Records

The Parish Archive holds the original Admission Registers, Minute Books, Log Books, Punishment Book (!) and more, some dating from when the school first opened on 6 January 1854 including the opening speech. These are being digitised as and when time allows.

To access those that have been digitised so far click on a title/link below or go the The Parish Archive Register and enter  Schools  in the search facility at the top of the first page.
