The Old School in New Romney forms an important part of the Town’s history, culture and continued social activity. First opened In 1821, it has educated many generations of local children. After its closure, around 1967 the building, left empty, fell into a state of disrepair. Thanks to the formation of New Romney Old School Trust in 1988, fund raising activity and a grant from the National Lottery the building was restored and re-opened in 2000.
Today’s Old School remains an important part of the local community, hosting an active schedule of events, classes, clubs, sales etc. It also houses the Town’s Museum providing an interesting insight into the history of this fascinating area. This is open to the public every month on the 1st and 3rd Sundays from 2pm – 4.30pm.
