William Gilpin School has a long history
of service to the community. The school was
originally founded by the
Reverend William Gilpin in 1791
"for the education of the sons and daughters
of the day labourers of the parish." 
By 1870 the original building
on the corner of School Lane
in Boldre was too small
for the needs of the village and the
present building was opened in 1875.
