This was built in 1860 as a National School by Henry Edwardes Handley (1835-92) of the Culverthorpe family.

It closed in October 1969 with children transferring to the primary school in Helpringham.

The north transept of the church has a three-light window with geometrical tracery in the form of trefoiled circles.

This is considered to be from the medieval church which predates the present Victorian work of Kirk (1870-71).

The church of St Andrew was extensively rebuilt by Charles Kirk of Sleaford in 1870-71. Some of the north transept from an earlier period was retained.

Inside are some fragments of notable Anglo-Saxon sculpture in the form of interlace patterns.
