Administrative/Biographical history:

The Education Committee of the London County Council consisted of 35 members of the Council and a number of co-opted members who were invited to serve on the Committee because of their experience in the educational field. The Committee was divided into smaller sub-committees, each with a specific focus, for example the Further Education Sub-Committee concerned itself with the policy and management of all after school-age education. The Education Officer and his staff carried out the decisions of the Committees and acted as their advisers.

To avoid over-centralisation, London was divided into 9 divisions, each consisting of about three of the metropolitan boroughs. Every division had a local office, the headquarters of the divisional officer who was the representative of the Education Officer. School inspectors were also based at the divisional office.

Division One: Chelsea, Fulham, Hammersmith, Kensington
Division Two: Hampstead, Paddington, Saint Marylebone, Saint Pancras, Westminster
Division Three: Finsbury, Holborn, Islington
Division Four: Hackney, Shoreditch, Stoke Newington
Division Five: Bethnal Green, City of London, Poplar, Stepney
Division Six: Deptford, Greenwich, Woolwich
Division Seven: Camberwell, Lewisham
Division Eight: Bermondsey, Lambeth, Southwark
Division Nine: Battersea, Wandsworth
