The inscription on the stone reads:

...the waste land at Coupe Gr(een belonging)
to George Smith - wher
He hath erected this school
other buildings at his own
pence and the said George Smith in charity towards...
Poor children has consigned
the same for Ever to be applied
for the instruction of Poor
Children living in this district.
(Suffer) little children to come to (Me)
of such is the kingdom
