Ealing College was founded in 1820 as a church school for boys, attached to Saint Mary's, Ealing. In 1879 it moved to larger premises and took both day pupils and boarders. However, its fortunes declined and in 1901 it was closed and the building sold. However, in 1925 nearby Acton College was re-founded as Ealing College (Upper School), a private school for boys.
The Reverend Ivor Roy Dowse, born 1935, was Chair of the Wembley History Society in 1970. As well as the history of Ealing College, he is also the author of "Brent Parish Churches : a short guide to the Parish Churches in the Rural Deanery of Brent"; "The pilgrim shrines of England" and "St. Andrew's Sudbury, Middlesex : the story of a modern church in an ancient parish".
