4. Excellent. 5. Very satisfactory; the progress in elementary Subjects is good; graminar and arithmetic

The room is not very good, and is below the level of the street; the school is conducted with great care and a
very fair measure of success, by the mistress, who has been 17 years in this situation; the children are in
good order, evidently attached to their teacher, and are properly prepared for the National schools. Some

addition to the stock of books, pictures, and apparatus is needed.
1. Three groups of parallel desks have been placed in the school; a great improvement. 3. The school con-

ducted in four divisions by mistress and two pupil-teachers. 4. Good; but capable of improvement. There
is too much whispering; the girls appear attached to their mistress. 5. Very satisfactory; the progress in
all subjects indicates care and skill in the teacher. 6. A well-inforned and able teacher. 7. This school is
in a satisfactory condition. The girls receive a good practical education, and are thoroughly well instructed

children are very neat, and behave well. 5. Not at all satisfactory; the reading is very bad, and the progress
in all elementary subjects shows want of system or of energy. 6. She is well informed; her manners are

very pleasing ; but she evidently does not understand the management and teaching of infants.
1. No change since last year, the rooms are small but not inconveniently arranged. 2. Very fair supply.

3. The school is conducted in six divisions by master and four pupil-teachers. 4. Good. 5. Not peculiar.
6. He is a man of considerable power in teaching and management of a school. 7. This is a school of a
rather peculiar character; the boys {pay 6d. weekly, and belong to respectable parents. The instruction, as
might be expected, is of a higher character than usual; the boys have a good deal of general information, and

are well advanced in all ordinary subjects.
1. The desks are not at all convenient; it would not be easy to have a good arrangement in this room; but

three groups of parallel desks might be placed on the side nearest the windows. 2. Good supply. 3. The
school has been well conducted by the mistress and three pupil-teachers; two have now completed their
apprenticeship. 4. Very good. 5. The reading is remarkably good, and the progress in most elementary

1. A grant has been made for parallel desks, which will be placed in the school immediately. 2. Good supply.

3. The school is conducted in four divisions, by master, two pupil-teachers, and two candidates. 4. Good. 5. A
considerable mixture of collective and simultaneous teaching, generally speaking on Mr. Stow's system,
which the master learned at Cheltenham. The instruction appears to be efficiently conducted. 7. The
school has suffered somewhat from two changes last year; the present master has not been in this situa.

markably good. 5. Not peculiar; the progress in most subjects is very satisfactory; the memory of the
boys is well cultivated, and they have a good deal of general information. 6. He is an able and diligent
teacher. 7. The five pupil-teachers who leave this year have not applied for admission to a training school;
they hope to obtain situations in si ho us at once; they have behaved well, and state that they are only

deterred by the expense of a training school.
1. The arrangements are excellent, excepting that the desks are not firm enough, and some of the forms are

too low for the boys to write at their ease. 3. Same as last year. 4. Fair. 6. He is a respectablo man, and

2. Good supply. 3. The school has been conducted by mistress and five pupil-teachers. 4. Very good.
3. Indicate great skill and industry; the progress in most subjects is very satisfaitory; the arithmetic is not
so good, and should be noticed. 8.'An excellent teacher; her health has not been good of late, and the
school has necessarily suffered somewhat from this cause. 7. The improvement in this school is very remark-

able; the discipline and instruction are now equally satisfactory.
1. The arrangements are those of the old National system; the room would give more accommodation, and in

every respect be more convenient, with four groups of parallel desks. 2. Good supply. 3. The school is con-

1. Three groups of desks, well arranged and perfectly commodious. 2. Good supply. The school is conducted in

three divisions by master and two monitors, who are candidates for apprenticeship. 4. Instruction, the boys
are very intelligent and remarkably well informed; the teacher deserves great credit; discipline good; if
the boys were somewhat neater, I should consider the discipline to be excellent. 5. Good. 6. He has

evidently worked steadily and skilfully.
1. The desks face the wall, and the cloaks, &c. of the children hang above them; the arrangement might be

easily improved ; the infant schoolroom is rather small and inconvenient. 2. A'large supply of easy reading
books, and some additional maps, are wanted. 3. The school is conducted in four divisions, by mistress and
monitors, two of whom are candidates for apprenticeship. 4. Very good. 5. The reading, writing from
dictation, and general information, are quite satisfactory; the arithmetic is deficient in accuracy. 6. She is
a person whose influence is most beneficial to the children. 7. The schoolroom would be very commodious
with two alterations ; 1st, a roomy lobby for the cloaks and a washing-stand; and, 2d, by three groups of
parallel desks, which should be flat in a girls school, for the sake of the needlework; the general condition
of the school is very satisfactory. The infant school is on the same premises; it is conducted by a mistress

and assistant.
1. Much improved by parallel desks. 2. The supply of easy books and of common apparatus should be

increased. 3. Hitherto the school has been conducted by master and two pupil-teachers. 4. Apparently
good. 5. The general progress is satisfactory; I am not sure that the method of teaching the younger

boys to read is efficient. 7. The school has been conducted with care, and is in a satisfactory condition.
1. Same as last year. 2. Easy reading books are wanted. 3. No change; the mistress and pupil-teacher

manage the school. 4. Good. 5. Not peculiar. 6. She appears to be intelligent and well trained.

8 May 124 86 189 1. Same as last year2. Good supply. 3. The school is conducted in six divisions by master, assistant,

and four pupil-teachers. 4. Satisfactory: there is spirit in the instruction, and the boys are fairly advanced
in most subjects; the discipline is improved; the boys are not cleanly enough., 5. Not peculiar. 6. A very
industrious and successful teacher. 7. This schoolroom is not so good as might be expected in such a parish
as Hampstead. A more complete building on a better site ought to be erected; the classroom is very bad,

and there is no yard.
4 May 91 30 40 86 1. The desks have been removed, but they are not well arranged. 2. Good supply. 3. The school conducted

by mistress, two pupil-teachers, and one candidate. 4. Improving, but not perfect; there is too much whispering, and time is lost owing to the inattention of the girls. 5. Satisfactory progress in most subjects.

6. A very intelligent and conscientious teacher.
6 May 111 72 70 100 1. The classroom is conveniently arranged, but there are not desks enough in the schoolroom; it would be

a great improvement to have two groups of parallel desks along the room. 2. Supply of books ought to
be increased. 3. The school is conducted by master, two pupil-teachers, and a caudidate; monitors are
also employed, which appears unnecessary with a good arrangement of lessons. 4. Very fair ; much
improved since my last visit. 5. Same as in former years; the progress in the usual subjects is satisfactory.

6. He is a painstaking teacher, and well informed.
10 May 38 28 37 1. Same as last year, satisfactory: 2. Good supply, excepting for the lowest class, who want easy reading

books. Three classes, taught by the master and the pupil-teacher. 4. Apparently very good. 5. The
progress in most subjects shows that the master has taught with care, and not without skill. 6. He is a
young man, with a true vocation for teaching, industrious and intelligent; he has however not had sufficient
instruction or training. 7. The number of children in attendance is very small; the boys find employment
at a very early age in market gardens, &c.; the parents earn good wages, but appear to have little interest in
educating their children. There is an excellent piece of ground attached to this school, which is cultivated
by the boys; this is not done systematically, and the master does not overlook the work or keep any accounts
connected with it. I have recommended the committee to inquire into the subject, and to make regulations

for the better use of this important adjunct to a school.
11 May 85 25 47 108 1. Same as last year ; new schools not yet built. 2. Good supply. 3. Master, with pupil-teacher and occasional

monitors. 4. Good. 5. Not peculiar; the progress in elementary subjects is generally satisfactory; the

reading is not good. 6. A very respectable man; a conscientious and industrious teacher. 100 18 52 116 1. The arrangements same as last year; the new school will be thoroughly well arranged. 2. A grant has been

made. 3. The mistress and one pupil-teacher have hitherto conducted the school in five classes. 4. Very

good. 5. Satisfactory. 6. She is a good teacher and school manager.
12 May 96 26 25 90 1. Same as last year. 2. Good supply. 3. Mistress and three pupil-teachers. 4. Very good. 6. A fair mixture

of separate and collective teaching. 6. She is a good teacher, and manages children remarkably well. 7.
This is a very favourable specimen of a mixed school presenting all the difficulties which the conductors of
education in villages have to contend with; the religious instruction is excellent, and the children thoroughly
well grounded in the usual subjects.

; 80 45 42 96 1. Same as last year, the classroom is conveniently arranged. 2. Good supply. 3. The school is conducted by

master and two pupil-teachers in two rooms and five classes. 4. Apparently good. 5. The instruction indicates considerable ability in the teacher; the boys are well grounded, and have learned many subjects not usually introduced into good schools. 6. A skilful and successful teacher. 7. Attendance is nearly 100.
