Remembered Today:

Education prior to the War

I didn't know where to place this thread on the Forum so apologies in advance.

In some research pre-war into the education of a chap killed in 1918, the 1911 Census records that he was recorded as a scholar at Yorkshire Society School, Westminster Bridge Road, London. A bit of a 'Google' revealed that the school was established in 1812 for the education and maintenance of boys born in Yorkshire or of Yorkshire parents.

As regards the chap in question, aged 15 years, i presume this is some form of further education?

Question: Apart from the Yorkshire connection, what is the criteria for entry and due to location (Lambeth) does the school have any links to the Church possibly? Would you have to pay for entry?

Best wishes to all.

This is from someone researching her family tree. She states "It was a school for pupils whose parents were 'reduced by misfortune'."
