THE CURRICULUM IN 1851

In 1851 the school formed "Classes for Superior Instruction"; while charitable contributions still covered the costs of those 'unable to provide for themselves', wealthier parents could purchase more advanced classes for their children.

The schemes of work under this development were:

BOYS' SCHOOL

THE FIRST CLASS of instruction includes Spelling, Reading from boards, Writing, Arithmetic,  Grammar, Outlines of Geography, English History, and Singing. Terms, as at present, Twopence per week.

THE SECOND CLASS includes all the subjects of the First class carried further; also Ancient and Modern History, Sciences and Useful Arts, Natural History, rudiments of Drawing and Singing by notes. Terms, Fourpence a week.

THE THIRD CLASS includes all the Second class carried still further; also Mental Arithmetic, Book-keeping and Mercantile Correspondence, English Composition, rudiments of Mathematics, Physical and Scriptural Geography, Geometry, Mechanics and Mapping. Terms, Sixpence per week.

GIRLS' SCHOOL

THE FIRST CLASS includes Spelling, Reading from boards, Writing on slates, Arithmetic, Outlines of Geography and English History, Plain Needlework and Singing. Terms at present, Three-halfpence per week.

THE SECOND CLASS includes all the subjects of the First Class carried further; also Ancient and Modern History, Mental Arithmetic, Physical and Scriptural Geography, Singing by notes and Knitting. Terms. Threepence a week.
