AYTON SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHIC

 
Homepage




============================================= 

In 1927 the School published an eight-page Prospectus - plus loose photographic prints - to comprehensively show prospective parents and guardians what sort of School Ayton was and how their childrens' religious and educational well-being would be catered for.

The Prospectus has been reproduced as faithfully as possible attempting to conserve the original format within these web pages, with the exception of including photographs in appropriate pages.

We are indebted to Bernard Low (1966-68) who lives in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. He had been in touch with an old friend of his parents, Tom Brewis  - also an OS (1929-31) - who showed Bernard an original copy of the 1927 Ayton School Prospectus. Bernard scanned this - text and photographs - and e-mailed the results which now appear on these next nine pages. 

In October 2002  a full copy of the Prospectus surfaced and, thanks to Margaret Cumber, we are now able to add the missing pages: Fees and Regulations and the clothing lists for boys and girls.

AYTON SCHOOL

The Friendsí School, Great Ayton, was founded in the year 1841 by members of the Society of Friends, in order to give a good practical education, combined with a definite religious training, to the children of parents who are connected with the Society. The committee, however, gladly admit other children whose parents are willing for them to observe the ordinary regulations, one being the attendance at our Meetings for worship.

Considerable extensions were made to the School buildings during the years 1915 and 1921, in order to improve and increase the accommodation provided, and there is now provision for about 160 boarders - 60 girls and 100 boys between the ages of 8 and 17 years. The number of children in the School has increased by over 70% during the last few years.

It is impossible in a Prospectus to give more than a general idea of the work and aims of the School, and those who are interested in education are cordially invited to visit the School, as it is only by a personal inspection of the buildings and an interview with the Headmaster that a true impression can be formed.

Great Ayton is easily reached from Middlesbrough being nine miles distant - either by train or motor-bus, and the School, which faces the Village Green, is ten minutesí walk from the Railway Station.
