In a delightful village, the Old School offers the opportunity to hire either part of - or the entire - venue. Great facilities are available for flexible use.

The building is adaptable for family celebrations, as well as corporate, council and other professional gatherings. For large events, we suggest our main hall - which can, for example, be turned into an impressive setting for a wedding - or, for smaller ones, our cosier meeting room.

We can accommodate a maximum of 90 people in the main hall.

The large hall can be easily turned into a magnificent wedding reception venue  
or an ideal space for a large meeting or social event, such as: a race night, quiz,
bingo, harvest supper

Our small meeting room can provide you with space, comfy chairs and tables for up to 20, this is ideal for a meeting or small social gathering.

Depending on your needs, we provide Wi-Fi Internet access, flip charts and excellent refreshment making facilities in a modern catering kitchen.

We have a marquee available for the courtyard to give you more space if you need it.

Our rates are reasonable and competitive; please contact our booking secretary Jan Miles, oldschool@abthorpe.net for more details and a quote.

We have been fundraising for a number of years  to bring our beautiful  Old School up to date. Our plan provides a modern space for the current environment in which we live. To that end we have updated the electrics, refurbished the kitchen, and provided accessible facilities. 

In our latest phase we have completed the hall. This now has storage facilities for the tables and chairs, lighting for any mood, multiple electricity points, a permanent sound system, feature fire place, air source heating  and soft furnishings to make  the room flexible for any occasion.  

Thanks to you, we have raised an amazing 36,190.09!

We now have a beautiful big room, a practical modern kitchen and accessible toilets, as well as everything else listed!

We now also have FREE superfast broadband (over 50Mbps) installed by Tove Valley Broadband with high capacity WiFi which provides this full speed service no matter how many people are using the facilities.
