Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint George's School was founded by the parish of Saint George, Hanover Square, in 1803. The school aimed to teach the poor children of the parish basic education and practical skills. The school was successful and grew, incorporating an infant's section and amalgamating with another local charity school. In 1898 the school moved to a larger building on adjoining premises. In 1952 the senior pupils were separated to form a secondary school in Saint Martin in the Fields, leaving only infant and junior children. St George's (Hanover Square) Church of England Primary School still operates from the 1898 building in South Street.
