Hanley Swan C of E primary school
Hanley Swan C of E primary school
A Church of England "controlled" school on the Welland Road next to the village hall.
It was built around 1861 as a "school for the education of children and adults or children only of the Labouring, Manufacturing or other poorer classes."
In 1947 it became solely a primary school.
Notice how the older part of the school, with Malvern granite walls, looks just like a chapel - for indeed it was also used as a chapel of ease for the inhabitants of the Swan Green area (now called Hanley Swan) until St Gabriel's church was built.
