Primary Sources: British Poor Schools in the Nineteenth Century, 1812-1901

Recently added to our collection of British Online Archives are the reports of British Poor Schools in the Nineteenth Century, 1812-1901. The compiled reports were printed and then microfilmed — this resource is a digitized version of the microfilm.  

These reports cover the history of poor schools and the societies that ran them in Britain, including schools from the Anglican and Wesleyan denominations as well as secular and Catholic schools, and chart the rise of education for the poor from the industrial revolution to the Victorian era.
