Pamphill First School

First built in 1695, the school was only the central part of the building, meaning a very low capacity, with adjoining almshouses on either side. It was built through the will of Roger Gillingham of the Middle Temple, who left property in Bedfordshire, Hackney and Stepney to trustees, in assurance that they would raise £400 for a close next to Pamphill Green. It has continued over the years with the almhouses becoming classrooms and, closer to now, building work to make more room. An inscription on the outside of the school reads:To God & ye poor
