Originally published in 1967, this book was intended to be of value
to students of Education in two ways. Firstly, all such students
were expected to know in broad outline the story of the development
of our national education system in the previous 150 years. This
book shows how these national events affected a number of schools
in a particular locality. Their history was preserved in their
physical structure, all too solid and long-lasting in many cases to
be easily adapted to changing needs of the time; it was preserved
also in minutes and log-books and other records that happen to
survive. The second value of this book was that quite often
students were asked to use these local records to re-create the
story of a history of a school or group of schools. It was felt
that we needed many more of these local investigations as a basis
for a fuller and more vivid representation of this national
development, and students' accounts, if done with proper care,
could make a useful contribution. Mr Seaborne's book is a model and
example of how this may have been done.
