Built as a National School in 1858 for the children of South Ormsby, Ketsby, Calceby, and Driby by Marie Jeanne Massingberd, a french governess from Versailles who became the dowager of the South Ormsby Estate.
Known as South Ormsby cum Ketsby Church School until July 1974 when it closed.
During 2020, expert conservationists have helped to preserve and protect its historic features while bringing it up to modern standards.
This includes extensive renovation works have been completed including restorations to the roof, replacement windows and a new ground source heating system to make use of renewable geothermal energy. A new kitchen was installed, along with toilets which will make use of a rainwater harvesting system.
Our Aim is to breathe life in to the 400 year old Estate of South Ormsby and so we have set up a Community Interest Company. This will help fund projects that we believe are important to enhance the locality and make living and working here a joy.
We also want to share these beautiful surroundings with others.
Along with projects such as community gardening, redesigning walks, cycling routes and bridle ways, improving fencing and hedging etc, we hope to train people in new skills to enhance their lives and careers.
We also are active in improving facilities and services.
We aim to raise £20,000 and will work towards milestones along the way such as better footpath signs and stiles, provison and maintenance of flower tubs, information boards etc
Any donations we receive for refreshments will go towards these projects.
