1. Desks against the wall; loose benches; two tables, clock, &c.

2. A very poor supply. 3. Six classes, under
master and one pupil-teacher. The classes are seated in squares on the floor of the room. 4. Poor; children
restless, inattentive, and talkative. 5. Monitorial. 6. He has been here thirteen months, but has not given
the pupil-teacher tho usual instruction, as he has not the power of doing so. He was a miner; is anxious to
improve himself, and honest in confessing his want of attainments. 7. This school is at a very low state.
The pupil-teacher has hardly been considered as an apprentice, and has been absent from school a great deal.

The apprenticeship must cease forthwith.
This is a very pleasing school in tone, discipline, and, for the most part, in attainments. The mistress has

been here nearly seven years, takes great pains with the children, and has been very fairly successful. They
are rather behind-hand in writing from memory, and slow at arithmetic. In other subjects there is very
creditable progress. They have a fair knowledge of Holy Scripture and catechism. Fees are 8d, for the
upper class, and 6d. for the rest, per month, paid in advance. The school-house, garden, and premises are
kept very clean and neat.

The classes are scated in squares on the floor of the room on one side, and in two rows on the other. 1. Vory fair. 5. Monitorial, under pupil-teachers. 6. He has been here nearly four years, is a very painstaking man, and has been successful in his work. 7. Very fair improvement during the last year. The pupil-teachers

seem to be making good progress, and acting well upon the school. 1. As before, against the wall. 2. A fair supply. 3. Six classes, under cortified mistress and three pupil. tachers, with three monitors taken from the first class. 4. Very fair; children clean, noat, quiet, and generally attentive. 5. Monitorial. 1. She has been here only four months, and came when there had been no mistress for six months. She seems to be a good disciplinarian, and a very fair teacher. 7. This school Wai without any mistress; solely under the charge of the pupil-teachers for six months, from 21th Docember 1939 to 21th June 1851, very much to the disadvantage of the apprentices.

175 The infant school is held in a school-room and adjacent class-room, under a mistress (who has been here four

years), and two monitors, uot apprenticed. The younger children in class-room, under one of the monitors.
About one fifth of the children read very easy narrative. The chicf instruction is on the gallery ; Scripture
lessons, a few object lessous, tables, &c. I only examined a few of the upper children from want of time.

They seemed to have fair kuowledge of the subject of the lesson.
7 Nov. 134 91 105 136 1. Parallel desks in three rows against one side of the room, on raised stage. 2. A fair supply. 3. Six classes,

under certified inaster and throe pupil-teachers. The classes are scated in squares on the floor of the room
some of them much crowded. 4. Moderate; a good deal of talking and unrest. The room is badly adapted
for sound. 6. Monitorial. 6. He has been here nearly four years ; is a methodical and intelligent teacher,
but a moderate disciplinarian ; does not attend sufficiently to little things. 7. There is great unpunctuality

here in the morning, as in the other schools in Huddersfield. Boys go to take their fathers' breakfasts.
91 31 72 83 1. Parallel desks on three rows on one side of the room. 2. Fair supply. 3. Five classes, under certified

mistress and two pupil-teachers. Classes seated in squares on the floor of the room. 4. Very fair.

5. Monitorial. 6. She has been here ten months; is a very intelligent teacher. 142

I merely examined the upper drafts of this school in Scriptural knowledge. The mistress should have assis

tance, as she has an average attendance of 140 children, without any monitor. Pupil-teachers might be
allowed here, and be taught by the girls mistress. The room wants better ventilation, in which at present

it is very deficient.
10 Nov. 93 10 30 87 There should be a pupil-teacher in this school; but no candidato is proposed. The children are in fair order,

and making tolerable progress. They have a fair knowledge of Holy Scripture and catechism. They are
under a master without paid assistants. The building is neat, and the rooms clean and conveniently

furnished.

The classes are seated in squares on the floor of the room. 4. Very fair; lower classes restless. 5. Monitorial.
6. She has only been here one month; is nervous, but seems fond of her work. 7. This is comparatively a
new school, where there is much want of additional teachers, and in which the clergyman and other managers

seem to take much interest.
11 Nov. 121 157 184 157 1. Desks against the wall; loose benches; master's desk. 2. A fair supply; more maps wanted. 3. Six classes,

improved since my last visit. 5. Monitorial. 6. He has been here rather more than five years; is painstaking

and earnest in his duties. 7. There are a good many short-timers in this school. Very good singing.
127 128 156 160 1. Desks against the wall; loose benches; mistress desk and table. 2. A fair supply. 3. Seven classes (one

of infants in adjoining room), under certified mistress and three pupil-teachers. Classes seatod in squares
on the floor of the room. 4. Very fair; children very clean and neat, more than usually so for a manufac-
turing place. 5. Monitorial. 6. She has been here nearly two ycars; has a good influence over the
children; is an intelligent teacher. 7. This school seems to be improving in all respects, except in the size
and age of the children.

diligent torchor, of great rospcotability, setting his pupils a vory good example. 7. The pupil-toaliet moom

to be wanting both in intelligence and energy as a teacher. 7. I think that he is not deserving of any
gratuity consequent on his certificate of merit. The school is in a very low state in nearly all respects.

220 Two desks, double desks, &c.; three black boards and casels. 2. A tolerable supply of reading books, those in

use are too high for the classes. 3. Five classes under master and unpaid monitors. Classes in irregular
shapes, on the floor of the room. 4. Very fair, considering the character of the children, and the crowded
state of some of the classes. 5. Monitorial. 6. He has been here rather more than a year, seems to be active,
and has done a fair work in the time. 7. A school composed almost entirely of mill children only 29 day

scholars out of 235 on the books.
90 15 1. Desks loose, facing the room, large gallery at the end of the room. . 2. A poor supply of books: no secular

reading-books for second or third classes. 3. Four classes under mistress and unpaid monitors; classes in squares on the floor. 4. Very fair. 5. Monitorial. 6. She is the master's wife, and has been here rather more than a year. 7. There are only 25 day scholars out of 157 on the books. The remainder are mill

children.
25 50 1. Double desk in centre of room ; loose desks placed parallel; clumsy gallery on one side of the room.

Master's desk; clock; loose benches. 2. A fair supply of books and maps; a map of Palestine wanted; only
one black board, fixed in a frame. 3. Four classes under master and his wife without monitors. 4. Fair,
without much method. Children quiet. 5. Chiefly individual, under the teaching of the master and his
wife, who teaches the younger children. 6. The master has been here three years, does not seem to have
knowledge of method, but questions his class with a fair degree of intelligence. 7. There is a great want
of ventilation here. If the apprenticeship be allowed in the school, it must be on the understanding that
the attendance increase during the next year, as it seems doubtful whether the actual attendance on the
whole year equals forty.

1852. 16. Harewood, Mixed - 27 Jan. 76 / 19

This is a village school, liberally supported by the Earl and Countess of Harewood, in which the boys and girls are taught by an untrained master with an unintelligent assistant. There are three classes of each sex, seated on different sides of the room. I cannot see any improvement in the general attainments of the children since last year. Their knowledge of Holy Scripture and catechism is scanty and vague. The other subjects are small in quantity and mechanically received. The writing of the first class is good. A few of the boys and girls sing fairly. The master has been here four years. Altogether I cannot think this school is doing its work satisfactorily.
