FREE SCHOOLS,

FOR THE

EDUCATION OF FATHERLESS AND OTHER POOR

CHILDREN,

Borough-Road, George's Fields, Southwark.

“The Boys' School was instituted as a Free School, by Joseph Lancaster, in 1801; and is actually extended to Seven Hundred Boys, who are instructed upon a Plan entirely new; by means of which, ONE + MASTER alone can educate One Thousand Boys, in Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic, as effectually, and with as little Trouble, as Twenty or Thirty have ever been instructed by the usual modes of Tuition.

“From the very great utility of this system of Education, a Subscription has been set on foot to support it; and several of the principal Subscribers are desirous of extending this Establishment to at least One Thousand Boys, and also to erect a School Room for Girls, upon a similar Plan, with the addition of Needle Work, under the care of the Two Sisters of Joseph Lancaster.”
