I hope the answer is "The school is within a hundred yard from the church".

There is also yard in place of yards.

The sentence should be The school is within the hundred yard from the church.

"within hundred yards" defines a range so shouldn't it be.

- the school lies within hundred yards OF the church.

It means the school is hundred yard far from church.

It should be "within a hundred yard".

This should be:.

"The school is within hundred yards OF the Church" since the distance is not specific. And if the distance were specific, then the sentence would be "The school is hundred yards FROM the Church".

Yes, within is followed by of and never from.

The correct sentence is, The school is within hundred yards to the church.

Dr Mubashir said: (Apr 27, 2018)  
It should be "The school is within a hundred yards from the church".

Mayank said: (Aug 8, 2018)  
Simple, within is always followed by a.

Example: I will come back within a month.
You should return this book within a week.
My house is within a 5 kilometre range.
