The school erected in 1876 to serve the villages of South Carlton and Burton was a National School replacing the Monson Free School founded in 1678 by Sir John Monson.

It is Grade II listed.

The exterior of St. John Baptist, South Carlton, is largely the 1860 restoration work of S. S. Teulon. The bands of different coloured roof slates are typical of his style.

Inside is a Norman west arch.

The unbuttressed tower has a pyramidal roof.

Both the south aisle and the south wall of the chancel - seen here - were rebuilt by S S Teulon in 1859-60.

The font dates from the Victorian restoration of the church. Surely it is 'one off the peg' and not designed by Teulon.

The aisle arcades were rebuilt using original material of the 13th century in the restoration of the 1860s.

The piers of the south arcade are octagonal, those of the north are round. Both have double-chamfered arches.
