Best Answer

Chantry Schools were the most important source of education in the middle ages. They were usually grammar schools but also elementary schools. Chantries, generally within a Church, were endowed for the singing of masses for the founder after his death. The Chantries rapidly increased after the Black Death, not only in Churches, but in hospitals and monasteries, again in memory of the founders. During the English Reformation there were generally abolished. Chantries were expensive to establish and were maintained by those with a measure of wealth.
