Dates of existence

c. 19th century


National Schools were founded by the National Society for the Education of the Poor in the Principles of the Established Church which was formed in 1811. In 1857 the St Saviour’s Church Association supported the introduction of an Evening School in the parish and by November 1859 this had been displaced by a Day School for boys. Since the records of the Schools deposited with the College of St Paul and St Mary are incomplete, little more than a rough outline of the development of the school may be traced. However, minutes of the School Manager’s meetings in the early 1900s indicate the increasing control of the London County Council over their administration
