The school was built in 1860 for 120 pupils at a cost of £600, raised by subscription with the aid of government grants. In due course it became a CE controlled primary school.

The school closed in 1974 with the pupils transferring to St Michael's CE Primary School in Louth.

The design of the main classroom is typical of its period. The plain red brick box with its slate roof has been enlivened by contrasting diaper work in blue brick.

The site of Welton le Wold is one of the most important in the East Midlands for the study of the sequences of Ice Age glaciation in the region and the presence of early hominins.

This Palaeolithic handaxe is one of three discovered at the site in 1973 by Allan Straw and Chris Alabaster, and represents one of the oldest hominin tools known from the county.

Even more important is the fact that it comes from a site that has also produced animal remains, and is a probable hunting and butchery site.
