The Old School c.1910

is a Grade II listed building, built in 1859 and still in use as a village school right up until 1976.

It is the oldest former local authority school building within the

City of Hull still used for

educational purposes

The Old School, Sutton on Hull

The Museum also has a secondary website, on Google, easily found using Google Maps. 

CLICK HERE

to go direct to it, where there are more views of the museum and regular postings of new photo memories from our huge collection archives.

It also connects very nicely to

Google Maps on your phone.

The Main Hall, shown here left, hosting one of our frequent Family History events.  The hall can be configured with tables down the centre if required. We can also deploy a projector screen at either end, with seats for 40 viewers.

Seats can be placed in the main hall for a film show or presentation, and the tearoom used for your refreshments.


The Tea Room, shown here to the right and left, can likewise be configured to different arrangements.  Here on the right with tables in the centre for a large buffet, with plenty of separate seating around the sides. Alternatively, more informally, as for a small party.

The last picture shows the serving hatch, which leads through to the kitchen.


Each room can be used to complement the other.


Please note that the museum room itself, not shown here, is separately locked and is not part of any hire.

The Old School today

which also houses a small museum,

is ideal for those smaller, more

'homely' family gatherings,

say for a Silver or Golden Wedding, family re-union, or even for a

smaller funeral tea.


Around two dozen can easily sit down

for tea in the main hall, and use the tables in the 'tearoom' to lay out

a 'serve yourself' buffet.

The kitchen facility includes a main oven, a fridge, the use of several teapots, kettles, and a full range of crockery and cutlery.  Between the kitchen and the dining room/tea room is a serving hatch.  It's very easy to do your own catering in this kitchen, indeed, the museum volunteers do so regularly for special events and weekends.
