Related information The catalogues of many schools include references to other archives groups. The long and close connection with the Church of England means that many items have reached the Record Office via the incumbent and have been catalogued with his parish records. All these items will have a reference prefixed by "Par". The local authority's involvement has produced an accumulation of records relating to sites and buildings, which are held in the West Sussex County Council's archive. Plans are among the records of the County Architect and normally bear the prefix "WDC/AR". Title deeds and related papers have been catalogued in the Add MSS series. There are also smaller numbers of cross references to other West Sussex Record Office collections. In addition there is, of course, much further information (beyond the scope of this catalogue) to be found in the records of the County Education Department and of the County Education Committee and its sub-committees
Some schools are represented in the Record Office only by records in other collections or of other schools. They do not have entries in the main body of this catalogue, but are listed here with references to those other collections or to entries for other schools in this catalogue

(4 cassettes) WSRO OH 91

Administrative history:
Most of the schools are elementary (Infants, Primary or Junior) with the majority founded in the middle or late 19th century. A few date back to the earlier years of the century, and a handful to the previous. In a county firmly attached to the Established Church, the majority were founded as National or Church of England schools. Between the 1870 and 1902 Education Acts about 20 Board Schools appear, often taking over from failing voluntaries. In the 20th century, the Local Education Authority takes on an increasingly important rôle.
The core of their records derives from the Revised Code of 1862, producing series of logbooks and pupil admission registers (backed up, of course, by managers' minute books). With the 20th century, a wider diversity appears, reflecting study topics, pupil activities and school organisations.
Secondary schools are thinly represented in an almost entirely rural county. Historic endowed grammar schools at Chichester, Horsham, Midhurst, and Steyning, provide the oldest material in the collection. The nineteenth century reflects the emergence of independent schools such as the Woodard foundations at Lancing, Ardingly and Hurstpierpoint (whose true archives are held within their institution) - and smaller, and usually short-lived, institutions such as Lancing Grammar School. The other secondary schools are established after 1918 Education Act - initially selective, but, with the passing of the 1944 Act, broadening to include Secondary Moderns and Comprehensives. The records of the secondary schools are more diverse than the primaries. Logbooks are rare; but admissions are reasonably well documented. There is, however, a greater quantity and variety of records covering pupil and school activities.

Contents:
This collection consists of the records of approximately 250 schools covering the whole of the county. Almost all are local authority controlled, and almost all the records have been received under the aegis of the County Education Department - in a steady flow of deposits from the 1950's onwards. A few private or independent schools are included, but their material is usually in published or duplicated form rather than original
The tables below give the references for all the schools in the following urban areas:

COWDRAY MS.1910/21 Letter from [Revd.] F. Bourdillon, [rector of] Woolbeding to Lord Egmont. States that he is endeavouring "to raise funds for building a School in a central situation in this parish. At present there is nothing but a very insufficient dame-school in a remote quarter. My object is to build a school, capable of holding 60 boys and girls, & to place it under the efficient teacher. The cost including a small house for the teacher, will be about £300. Towards this, [Hon.] Mr. & Mrs. [George] Ponsonby give the ground and £50. Capt. [Hon. Edward] & Mrs. Howard £50, Sir Chas. Taylor [1st Bart.] £20, and myself £25. I am applying to all other owners of land in the parish........ I am aware your Lordship's property within this parish is not large (about 50 acres I think), but I trust you will kindly give us assistance proportionate to your interest in the parish and to the other claims on your Lordship". 6 December, 1856

Administrative history:
Milton Mount was established in 1871 at Gravesend by the Reverend William Guest, and was originally founded to provide a Boarding School and Teacher Training College for the daughters of Congregational Ministers. The daughters of laymen were first admitted in 1889, and in 1920 the school moved to the mansion at Worth Park, formerly owned by the Montefiore family. The school at Worth closed in July 1960, and was subsequently amalgamated with Wentworth School in College Road, Boscombe, Bournemouth. It was re-named Wentworth Milton Mount, and served as an independent grammar school for girls. An Old Girls' Association, called The Miltonian Guild, was founded in 1888, and continues today (1993)

Administrative history:
The school began as Bedford Row Pupil teacher centre in January 1905, but after only two years it was taking other school leavers in addition to pupil teachers. In 1909 the Local Education Authority took it over and developed it into a grammar school. In 1914 the school was moved to new accommodation in South Farm Road, as the County High School and in 1918 a junior house was added in Shelly Road. This later was closed in 1930, when additions were made to the South Farm Road site. Between March and July 1941 the school was evacuated to New Ollerton in Nottinghamshire. The school was reorganised into a comprehensive in 1973 and renamed Gaisford High School. In 1982, the school merged with West Tarring Secondary (see E/218T) to form Worthing High School (see E/218X).
