Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The school was established in 1806 by Rev. Richard Povah in St James Duke's Place, for the education, clothing and instruction in trades of both boys and girls. From at least 1817 the school was based at 5 Mitre Square, Aldgate, although until 1818 it was known as the St. James Duke's Place School of Instruction and Industry. The school was funded by voluntary susbscription, although the premises at Mitre Street were leased from the Corporation of London, who maintained the property. The school was wound up in 1845/6.
