In the nineteenth century, churches and individuals were the main benefactors setting up local schools, until in 1871, when the local authority in Reading also became involved in the provision of education through Reading School Board.This is when schools such as Kendrick Girls and Boys Schools were established.
Joan will tell us about the development of education in Reading through this period of time.
The talk will last for around an hour during which time there will be an opportunity to ask questions. After the talk tea/coffee and cake are served (included in the ticket price).
Advance booking is recommended but you can pay on the door (subject to availability). Book online at htttp://berksfhs.org or face to face at The Centre for Heritage and Family History during opening hours
