Built in memory of Miss Hannah Allen — niece of Benjamin Haigh Allen who had endowed Holy Trinity Church — who died in Scarborough on 28 July 1863. Miss Allen's dying wish was reportedly that "an Infants' School should be built at Marsh".[1]

The school was opened on Palm Sunday, 1865.[2]

By the 1960s, the school had been converted into an Adult Education Centre. It was later closed and had been demolished by the 1970s.
