Abstract:
Robert Jenner's Schoolhouse, now used as the Parish Hall, is a Grade II* Listed Building, situated on the S side of Bath Road, Cricklade, adjacent to the churchyard of the medieval parish church of St Sampson. Analysis of the documentary and cartographic evidence has shown that the schoolhouse has an extremely complex history, undergoing four changes of use over its 350-year history. The structural evidence of the present schoolhouse building is equally complicated, reflecting these changes in function from the mid-17th century right up to the present day. The building stands in the SW corner of the old medieval market place of Cricklade, which was swept away by the middle of the 16th century. Initially founded as a school in 1652, in accordance with the will of Robert Jenner, a wealthy London merchant, it was closed in about 1680 and was subsequently repaired and converted for use as the parish workhouse in 1726. The two-storey eastern extension to the building, of early 18th century date, was probably built as the residence of the workhouse master and his family; it later became the Schoolmaster's House. In 1840, the building reverted to its original function as a schoolhouse and was extensively refurbished between 1841 and 1843. Further significant structural changes to the schoolhouse were made in 1874-75, when a single-storey extension was added to the northern elevation. The north entrance porch, in the way of the new wing, was dismantled and re-erected to its present position, while the north wall was completely rebuilt. It remained in use as a school until about 1966, when it was finally closed. In the 1980s, the old schoolhouse underwent a substantial programme of restoration and refurbishment, when it was converted for use as the Parish Hall and community centre.
