In the mid 1950s Guestling Bradshaw School was enlarged to cater for the children of Fairlight and Pett, in addition to those living in Guestling.  From the middle of the nineteenth century until then, Fairlight and Pett had had their own schools.   Most of the children attending the enlarged school came from the three villages, each of which supports the school financially.

The villages themselves are to the north and east of Hastings and were mentioned in the Domesday Book as being part of the Guestling Hundred.  Luet (modern Pett), Guestlingues and Ramslie (a large manor including Fairlight) all have long and ancient histories.
