The school was established in 1661 by William Aylworth from Gumley in Leicestershire who left endowments in his will for the establishment of schools in Pytchley and Little Harrowden. A trust was established for the benefit of children from Pytchley, Isham and Broughton. In 1868 the income was less than £26 per annum of which £20 was a rent charge on the Gumley estate in Leicestershire.
The trust remains in operation to this day.
