In 1759 Admiral Long promised to endow Flask Farm and in 1760 the new school was near completion. In 1761 William Mountaine reported that the new school was 'too small' and in 1763 the new addition was built. The trustees room was completed 1773, the original furnishings include chairs by Chippendale together with a map of the endowed lands and portraits of King George I and Queen Caroline, all of which remain. The minute books and correspondence records from the schools foundation are preserved in the trustees room. Burnt Yates Womens Institute, Clint cum Hamlets, 1975, pp 13-21.
