Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

A church school was established in Cowley in about 1836, taking over a charity legacy for the education of poor children. In 1877 the school moved to new buildings in Church Road and, in 1891, to buildings in the High Street, which were enlarged in 1933-34. A new school was opened in Worcester Road in 1955. This took most of the juniors, although the High Street buildings continued in use for younger children for some time.

From about 1930 only juniors and infants were taught at the school. Older boys had gone to school in Hillingdon since 1890 and the older girls were removed from Cowley in the early 1930s.

Reference: The Victoria History of the County of Middlesex, Volume III, pages 176-7.
