Special Report, for the Year 852, by Her Majesty's Inspector
of Schools, the Rev. HENRY MOSELEY, M.A., F.R.S., &c., on the National Society's, Diocesan, and Church of England Training Schools for Schoolmasters.
ers out of
The Caernarvon Training School, the Winchester Diocesan Training School, and the Worcester Diocesan Training School have this year been added to the ten training schools for masters heretofore inspected. These thirteen institutions afford accommodation for 729 students, and when I visited them in the months of October, November, and December, 513 students were resident in them, being an increase of 163 on the number reported last year. As the three training schools added to the list only contained thirty-six students, it follows that the ten training schools reported on last year, have increased their numbers by 127 students.
Eighty of the resident students were Queen's scholars, a number which the succeeding Christmas examination brought up to 150. In addition to this number, twenty-five Queen's scholars were appointed in the Oxford Training School, ten in the British and Foreign Society's, and ten in the Wesleyan Training School.
- The total number of male candidates for Queen's scholarships at Christ- Number of mas 1852 was 412. The total number of boys whose apprenticeships were
pupil-teacl :completed in that year was 773* ; but those who completed their fourth year their apin 1852 were eligible for Queen's scholarships at Christmas of that year, and prentice
ships who many probably of them were among the 412 candidates. It appears, therefore, have not probable that little more than one half of the teachers whose apprenticeships gone to any expired in 1852 were candidates for Queen's scholarships at the end of that
school, year. Two hundred and three of these candidates were admitted Queen's scholars. On the supposition, therefore, that all these had completed their apprenticeships, none of the fourth year candidates being successful, it will follow that 570 male pupil-teachers, out of their apprenticeships, remain without Queen's scholarships.
Now I have ascertained that of the students assembled in the Church training schools after Christmast there were on the whole fifty-eightt, not being

Queen's scholars, who had been pupil-teachers. But of these, twenty were in their second year of residence, having been Queen's scholars in the previous year. So that only thirty-one of the 773 apprentices whose apprenticeships were completed in 1852, and who have not obtained Queen's scholarships, have entered the training schools; and there remain 539, for whose further education as teachers no provision has been made, in Church training schools. On the whole the account stands thus :
Number of male pupil-teachers in England and Wales who
completed their apprenticeships in Church schools in the
203 Number admitted to the Church training schools, when Number whose further education is not provided for in Church training schools
539 Unless we conclude that more pupil-teachers have entered the British and Foreign and Wesleyan training schools without getting Queen's scholarships than have entered all the Church training schools, it follows that more than 500 have entered no training school.
The table on the following page contains a general statement of the statistics of the Church training schools at Midsummer 1852, and of the number of certificates and Queen's scholarships obtained by them at the Christmas examination.
Three hundred and twenty-five new students came to them between Midsummer 1851 and Midsummer 1852, and 192 left them; there was still room at the latter period for 216. In respect to 145 of the 192 who left, I have returns which show their average period of residence to have been one year and nine months.
I have ascertained the salaries and other emoluments of ninety of these.
For forty-seven of them houses were provided, in addition to their salaries,
4 received £40 a year.
70 Of those who had houses there were, besides these, seven who received the children's pence. These had in addition to the pence the following salaries:One 301., two 401., three 501.
One received his board and lodging, and 201., as the remuneration of his services.
Of those for whom no houses were provided the following were the salaries :

Four of these afterwards obtained situations as masters of scliools.
