In 1848 plans for a new National School and teacher's residence were drawn up (BGP 42/1-3) and on 17 December 1849 Tilden Smith of Vinehall in Mountfield, esq conveyed a piece of land (18p) at Vinehall Street under the terms of the Schools Sites Act to the vicar and churchwardens of Mountfield and the rector and churchwardens of Whatlington for use as the site of the school. The school was built on the south side of the road at Vinehall (ROHAS P30/66); the deeds are either SAS/AN 126-132 or 146-160. On 1 October 1874 the trustees of the school exchanged the existing site and buildings with William Rushton Adamson for an new site at St John's Cross; a new school was constructed there at a cost of approximately £1,000 for 165 children (1878 trade directory). Considerable alterations and additions were made in 1882 (PAR 424/13/1). In 1920 a small piece of ground adjoining the school was presented by Raymond, Lord Ashton of Hyde, as a memorial to the men of the parish who were killed during the First World War; the land was used as a playground (1927 trade directory)

Administrative history:
Boys', Girls' and Infants' Schools
The schools had their origins in the Portslade and Hangleton National School which was erected in about 1841 on land given by George Hall of Portslade House and was situated in the South Street area - between present day Robin's Row and Windlesham Close. A school house was subsequently built in 1853 (BGP 50)
In 1871 land for a new school at Locks Hill was purchased from the Ecclesiastical Commissioners with a donation of £100 from Miss Hannah Brackenbury. The buildings, which wee known as the Brackenbury Schools, were designed by Edmund Evan Scott and they were formerly opened on 25 May 1872. In 1881 separate departments were created for the infants and mixed classes, while in September 1883 a separate girls' department was formed and an additional classroom was erected. From 1884 the schools were called St Nicholas Portslade and Hangleton Boys' and Girls' Schools. By September 1894 work had begun on the construction of two new classrooms for the boys and girls
On 23 July 1903 the new infants' school, which lay opposite the Boys' and Girls' Schools, was formerly opened. They were then known as St Nicholas' Boys' School, St Nicholas' Girls' School and St Nicholas' Infants' School
Boys' School
In November 1924 the Boys' School moved across the road to the premises formerly occupied by the Infants' Department. The schools were reorganised in September 1929: St Nicholas' Boys' School (on the west side of Locks Hill) became the Senior Boys' School, while the younger pupils were transferred to the new St Nicholas' Junior and Infants' Mixed School (formed from the Girls' and Infants' School) which occupied the premises formerly used by the St Andrews' Schools. The Senior Boys' School was closed on 2 August 1940 due to its dangerous position and the boys and staff were transferred to the new Senior Boys' Council School at Mile Oak. In March 1941 thirty six boys were evacuated to Sowerby Bridge, Yorkshire where they attended Bolton Brow Senior School. In September 1945 the school became the Portslade Boys' County Secondary School. For records of this school see BHF 6
Girls' School
The schools were reorganised in September 1929: the St Nicholas' Girls' School combined with St Nicholas Infants' School to form St Nicholas' Junior and Infants' Mixed School and occupied the premises formerly used by the St Andrews' Schools, while the older girls were transferred to the newly formed St Andrew's Senior Girls' School which also occupied the same premises. The Senior Girls' School was closed on 4 October 1940 due to its dangerous position and the girls and staff were transferred to the new Senior Girls' Council School at Mile Oak.. In September 1945 it became the Portslade Girls' County Secondary School. For records of this school see BHF 6
Junior School
In September 1929 the St Nicholas' Girls' School combined with St Nicholas Infants' School to form St Nicholas' Junior and Infants' Mixed School, which occupied the premises formerly used by the St Andrews' Schools. From January 1937 when the infants were transferred, it became known as St Nicholas' Junior Mixed School. The foundation stone for the new school, which was on a site adjacent to the old school, was laid on 7 June 1963 and the official opening took place on 12 July 1967

Administrative history:
Before 1933, approved schools were called reformatories or industrial schools depending on the age of the inmates. Industrial schools (for children under 14) and reformatories (for children aged 14 to 18) were set up following the Youthful Offenders Act 1854, and the work of industrial schools was further defined in the Industrial Schools Acts of 1857 and 1866. Industrial Schools were established 'for the better training of poor and neglected children' who were 'in danger of becoming criminals' (Industrial Schools Act 1866). Children were housed, fed, clothed, educated to an elementary level, and given some industrial or agricultural training
Many of the schools relied upon voluntary committees and private benevolence. They received per capita grants from the State for children committed by magistrates. In 1860, following an amendment to the Industrial Schools Act 1857, the Home Office assumed responsibility for the supervision of the running of the schools, and provided some financial assistance. Reformatories and industrial schools were renamed approved schools by the Children's Acts of 1932 and 1933
This was built in 1902 and run by a Joint Committee of Managers from Brighton Borough Council and London County Council Education Committees until 1913. Inmates from the Brighton and Preston School Board's Chailey Industrial School were transferred here in 1902 as were those from the London County Council Industrial School at Wilderness, Margaret. These industrial or reformatory schools (subsequently approved schools) came under the Home Office for purposes of inspection
From 1913 the school was run by London County Council, until its abolition in 1965, under the direction of this sub-committee of the Children's (South-Eastern District) Committee of the Council. In 1965 East Sussex County Council assumed control of the school, which itself closed in 1977

In August 1923 the girls' and infants' departments were amalgamated with the boys' department, and the combined departments became a mixed school. In January 1926 the school re-opened as St Leonards CE Junior Mixed and Infants' School. From January 1926 to July 1940 a senior girls' department was in existence. The school was evacuated in July 1940 and it re-opened in January 1945

Administrative history:
This school was originally known as St Leonards British and Infants' Schools and opened on 30 November 1868 in premises in London Road. The entrance to the girls' and infants' schools was in Gensing Station Road. A school board for Hastings and St Leonards was formed on 17 February 1871 and the school subsequently became the London Road Board School. It was replaced by a new school called Tower Road Board School, which opened for boys, girls and infants in May 1896. The site had been purchased by the Hastings School Board in 1894 from the Trustees of the Magdalen Charity
In 1903 the school came under the control of the Education Committee of the Borough of Hastings. The first meeting of the managers appointed under the 1902 Education Act was held on 12 Jun 1903. The school was disrupted by evacuees from London during 1939 and 1940 until the London County Council children were re-evacuated in June 1940. The last log book ends with arrangements for the evacuation of all children from Hastings in July 1940. There are no entries for the school in the Sussex Directories after 1939
The site of the school and the adjacent Technical School were in use by St Leonards Secondary Modern School for Boys and Girls by 1948. By 1958 the Directories record the school as Woodlands Secondary School for Girls and by 1974 as the (mixed) Grove Secondary School

Administrative history:
The Education Commissioners reported on a charity school founded at Telscombe by the will of the Rev Josiah Povey, 1727, in both 1819 (p 183-184) and 1836 (p 721); this introduction relies on those reports
By his will of 30 March 1727 (PAR 491/25/1/1), the rector of Telscombe Josiah Povey bequeathed land at St John's Common in Clayton to his wife and brother-in-law Cornelius Humphrey in trust to use the income to employ a person, to be appointed by his friend Dr Richard Russell, to teach children in the parish to read, write and sew; he also bequeathed a stable in Telscombe to be used as a school-room
By 1819 the buildings at Clayton were in disrepair and the rent, £6 6s after deductions, was paid to the parish officers, who used it to send children to schools in neighbouring parishes - a woman at Rottingdean and a schoolmistress at Piddinghoe. On account of the distance, there were not sufficient applications to require the whole of the income
The stable was sold shortly after the death of Henry Humphrey in 1783, along with other property which had belonged to Povey, to Edward Deans of Newhaven; at that time only the bare walls remained
Although the Commissioners doubted the propriety of the sale, they observed that there were no funds available to build on the site even if it could be recovered, and concluded that, until the rent of the land at Clayton was raised 'the parishioners cannot reap much benefit from this charity'
By 1836 the rent had not been increased and the parish still received six guineas. Between October 1830 and April 1834 the rector kept the school, and for a short time a woman was employed 'but most of the poor people declining to send their children,... it was, after a short time, discontinued'. The report recommended that a balance should be allowed to accumulate in the hands of the trustee and a schoolroom built
On 10 October 1845 the parish officers of Telscombe surrendered a copyhold cottage and land, which had been the site of a stable (but not Povey's stable), to the Rev George Hutchins, rector of Telscombe (AMS 6104/2). Trustees of Povey's Charity were appointed by an order of the Charity Commissioners on 27 August 1872; on 17 July 1878, when it was already the site of Telscombe Parochial School, the site of the stable was conveyed under the School Sites Act to the rector and churchwardens in trust to run a school and provide a house for the master or mistress (PAR 491/25/1/2)
The sale of the charity's endowment at Clayton, then known as Poveys Farm, was authorised by a Charity Commission Scheme of 30 May 1899 (PAR 491/25/1/2)
The school closed in January 1951 when the children were transferred to Telscombe Cliffs County Primary School

Administrative history:
A parochial school was built in 1761 which flourished into the nineteenth century. In 1830 a National School with two rooms was built, in what is now St Mary's Close, against the wall of the churchyard and in 1834 Mrs Elizabeth Underwood bequeathed £200 to the Incumbent and Churchwardens of Ticehurst in trust to use the interest towards the education of poor children
The new Ticehurst National School for boys and girls was built in Church Street in 1846 as the result of a bequest by Joseph Pettit, draper and grocer of Ticehurst, in his will of 15 June 1846 and the buildings were designed or built by Samuel Smith of Wadhurst. An infants' school was added in about 1870 and further enlargements were made to the schools in 1880
The school was re-organised in October 1911 when the boys' and girls' departments were amalgamated to form senior and junior sections. The 1915 edition of the Sussex directory lists a mixed and infants' school, while the 1927 edition lists only a mixed school
In 1940 the pupils of Morden Terrace Infants' School, London were evacuated to Ticehurst but they were soon re-evacuated to Wales
Following the 1944 Education Act, Ticehurst became a controlled CE school in 1945 and the from 1949 the over 11s attended the new Wadhurst County Secondary School. An extension was built in about 1967. The Ordnance Survey 25-inch map of 1909 shows the school on the eastern side of Church Street on the site of the current school (June 1993)

Administrative history:
Ditchling Road Board Schools for boys, girls and infants were officially opened on 3 October 1890. The boys' school opened for pupils on 13 October 1890 when fifty-three boys were admitted. The school was managed by the Brighton and Preston United School Board until 1903, when the school came under the control of Brighton Borough Education Committee. In November 1914 the Municipal Secondary Schools were requisitioned by the War Office and the boys were transferred to the Ditchling Road Girls' and Boys' Schools. The Ditchling Road pupils were transferred to the Preston Road and Loder Road Schools, where they continued to share premises on a double session system for the duration of the war. The school did not return to the Ditchling Road premises until December 1919. On 1 September 1928 the Ditchling Road, Balfour Road, Preston Road and Stanford Road Schools were all reorganised. Ditchling Road and Stanford Road were allocated departments for senior boys, junior mixed and infants while Balfour Road and Preston Road each had departments for senior girls, junior mixed and infants. The Ditchling Road Schools are recorded in printed directories up to 1938. By 1954 the school had become the Downs County Junior Mixed and Infants' Schools, which are still in existence today (July 1993)

Administrative history:
From 27 January 1873 children up to 7 years of age, under the Headmistress Miss H Weekley, were educated in a room in the Lewes Road Congregational Chapel. The site for the new school at Fairlight Place was compulsorily purchased after fierce local opposition and the new school opened for the infants' and girls' departments on 17 January 1876; the boys' department moved in on 27 March 1876. The school was also known as the Lewes Road Schools. The school was enlarged in 1883 and 1901, and rebuilt in 1932
In 1928 the school was reorganised: the infants', junior mixed and girls' departments were formed, the boys' department was closed and the pupils moved to the Central Schools (E/SC/16)
The girls' department, which from September 1947 was known as Fairlight County Secondary School (E/SC/222), was closed in 1962 and amalgamated with Elm Grove County Secondary School (E/SC/20)
The junior mixed department became Fairlight Middle School in 1973 and then Fairlight Junior School in 1985. In July 1992 it was closed and merged with Fairlight Infants' School to form Fairlight Primary School (E/SC/221)

Administrative history:
The earliest surviving records for this school state that Elizabeth Ennis took charge of it on 12 January 1880 'for the purpose of placing it under government'. She records that registration was begun on that date 'registers not having been kept before' (E/SC/167/1/1). The Sussex Directories for this period state that St Joseph's Catholic School for boys, girls and infants, was situated at Elm Grove. The earlier Directories, 1862-78, do not list a school at Elm Grove, although they do record St Joseph's Catholic School in Bristol Road in association with the St Joseph Convent of the Sisters of Mercy at Bedford Lodge
As the school grew in size it expanded into premises in the adjacent Milton Road. The minutes of the governing body of 3 March 1947 record refurbishment to the school annexe at 6 Milton Road. A Ministry of Education Order of 28 August 1950 directed that the school should be maintained as an aided school (E/MA/247/1/2). The Directory for 1954 describes it as a voluntary primary school for junior mixed and infants at Milton Road
Proposals for a new ten-class school to be built in Davey Drive, Hollingdean, were put forward in 1953. Negotiations with the education authority and the diocesan schools committee resulted in a compromise whereupon a seven-class unit would be built on the site, three of which were to be occupied by St Joseph's School and the remaining four classes used as a temporary infants annexe by the Hertford Road School. On 17 April 1956 three classes of juniors (114 pupils) were transferred from the old building at Milton Road to the new school in Davey Drive. The first year juniors and the three infants classes (156 pupils) remained at Milton Road. The rooms at Davey Drive used by the Hertford Road School were gradually taken over by St Joseph's School between 1959 and 1961. By September 1960 all the juniors were accommodated on the new site and on 26 July 1961 the infants' school at Milton Road was finally closed down. In September 1961 the combined school re-opened on the Davey Drive site and the official opening was held on 8 November 1961 (E/SC/167/1/2, E/MA/247/1/2)
In 1973 St Joseph's infants and junior school became a First School as part of a general reorganisation of Roman Catholic primary schools in Brighton. The school is now known as St Joseph's Roman Catholic Primary School (May 1993)

Administrative history:
Stanford Road School was opened in February 1894 comprising a Boys' School, a Girls' School and an Infants' School. It was managed by the Brighton and Preston United District School Board until 1903 when it came under the control of Brighton County Borough Council and became known as Stanford Road Council School. From 1903 it was managed jointly with Ditchling Road and Preston Road Schools and, from 1924, with Balfour Road School. From 1905-1924 Loder Temporary School was also part of the group. On 1 September 1928 Stanford Road, Ditchling Road, Preston Road and Balfour Road Schools were reorganised. From that date Stanford Road and Ditchling Road had departments for Senior Boys, Junior Mixed and Infants, whilst the other two schools had departments for Senior Girls, Junior Mixed and Infants. By 1954 Stanford Road School had become known as the Stanford Road County Primary School. By 1973 the school was known as Stanford Middle School. It is now (June 1993) known as Stanford County Junior School and is situated in Stanford Road
Mary Pullinger, the headmistress of the new Stanford Road Infants' School, appointed in 1894, had previously been the headmistress of Preston Road Junior Girls' School. The earliest infants' school log book contains entries for Preston Road Junior Girls' School (E/SC/26) from 3 March 1890 until 8 February 1894 when the entry records that 'this department as a Junior Girls' School was finally closed this morning as the New School in Stanford Road will be opened on Monday Feb 12th'. On 15 February 1894 Stanford Road Infants opened with 105 children (E/SC/170/3/1)
During the First World War the school building was used as a hospital. The classes were scattered between seven different buildings and did not return to the main school until December 1919 (E/SC/170/3/2). On 6 September 1973 the infants' school was still on the same site but opened after the summer holidays under the new name of Stanford First School. At that date it had 223 children between the ages of 4 and 8. During 1972-73 a new infants' school was built in Highcroft Villas, the northern extension to Stanford Road (E/SC/170/3/3). It was officially opened on 25 January 1974 and by 6 March had 271 children on its roll (E/SC/170/3/4). The school is now (June 1993) known as Stanford County Infants' School

Administrative history:
Hastings Corporation had a duty to provide educational provision for defective and epileptic children under the Elementary Education (Defective and Epileptic Children) Act, 1914, which came into force in January 1915. It was decided that the premises of Hollington Boys' School would be suitable for such a school due to their isolation from other buildings and self-contained position; the boys could be accommodated in the premises occupied by Hollington Girls and Infants. Hollington School was accordingly converted into Senior Mixed, and Junior Mixed and Infants' Departments with effect from 27 November 1916. Hollington Special School opened early the following year in the former boys' school
The school was situated at the top of Wishing Tree Road on the eastern side at the junction with Old Church Road, Hastings, now (1999) known as Church Wood Drive and Marline Road. By 1935 it was known as the Hollington School for Delicate Children, and in 1939 as the Hollington Special and Open Air School. Kelly's Directory for 1948 lists it as a special school for delicate and educationally sub-normal children, and it was known as The Wishing Tree Special School from the mid-1950s. The school was evacuated to Bedford from August 1940 to December 1944
The school was replaced by a new building in Croft Road called Torfield School, which was officially opened on 2 June 1965, although it had been in use from 21 September 1964. It was designed with separate senior and junior sections, with all classrooms communicating directly with the grounds. It originally took children to age 18, but was later a school for children mainly between the ages of 3 and 11 with moderate learning difficulties, presumably after the opening of Saxon Mount School in 1974. It was initially called Torfield Educationally Sub-normal School
The Assessment Unit for pre-school and infant children attached to the school was first based at Sidley County Primary School, and moved to School House at Chantry County Primary School, Bexhill, in 1989
Educational provision for Hastings schools passed to East Sussex County Council in 1974 following local government reorganisation
The school records include material relating to the Benevolent Fund of the local branch of the National Union of Teachers because Miss J M Povey, who worked at the school, was secretary from 1973, and many of the meetings were held at Torfield School

The school was opened on 3 September 1928, as the Brighton Intermediate School, in the premises formerly occupied by the girls' secondary school (later Varndean School for Girls E/SC/199) in York Place. Additional rooms were used at 99 Trafalgar Street until January 1931 when the old premises of the boys' secondary school became available. All years the first year were then transferred to these premises
In September 1931 separate departments for boys and girls were established, and were known as the Intermediate School for Girls (later the Margaret Hardy High School for Girls, E/SC/224) and Intermediate School for Boys respectively.

The establishment of the College was decided upon by Brighton Corporation soon after the passing of the 1892 Technical Instruction Act. Building work started in 1895 on the site at Richmond Terrace and teaching began on the premises in September 1897. In 1906 the building was enlarged by the addition of a new mechanical engineering workshop; the adjacent training college building (E/SC/193), erected in 1909 as a north wing, was adapted for use as an extension of the College in 1927. A south wing was erected in 1935
Separate accommodation was provided in 1950 at 12 St George's Place, for the Economics and Commerce Department, and in January 1951 the Arts and Social Studies Department was transferred to 251 Preston Road
In September 1962 it became Brighton College of Technology and in April 1970 it was amalgamated with Brighton College of Art to form Brighton Polytechnic (E/SC/191), which subsequently became Brighton University in 1993

Administrative history:
Fitzherbert Roman Catholic Middle School was created from the Fitzherbert Secondary Modern School in the reorganisation of Catholic education in Brighton in the 1970s. Prior to 1961 the Fitzherbert Secondary Modern School was known as the St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Secondary School. This school originated from the boys' department of St John the Baptist Roman Catholic School in Bristol Road. The senior school was created in August 1939 when the school was reorganised. The girls' and infants' departments, which had amalgamated in 1923, became a junior mixed school and subsequently became the St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School in Whitehawk Hill Road (E/SC/256). The senior school became the St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Secondary School. It was granted aided status in 1951 and moved into the premises of Warren Farm School in Woodingdean when the Corporation children's home closed in the early 1950s (E/MA/25). The school was closed in 1988 and the site was sold to The Nuffield Hospital Group in November 1993

Administrative history:
The school was opened in January 1870 as Christ Church District National School. It was built directly behind the parsonage, on land given in 1868 by Messrs Snoxall and Wallis, and was designed by H E Rumble and built by Mr Peerless. There were both mixed and infants' departments on the site; the latter was made separate in 1882, and closed in 1953 (E/SC/52)
The mixed school was destroyed by enemy action in 1940 (E/SC/209/6/1) and was then moved to Stafford House, 5 Upperton Road (which had been previously used by Eastbourne High School for Girls). From 1 August 1953 the school became the Stafford County Junior School and in September 1958 it moved to premises in Whitley Road. A newly built school was opened in September 1969 in Ringwood Road

Administrative history:
The Eastbourne National Boys' School and Eastbourne National Girls' School were established at St Mary's Cottages, Brightland Road in 1814
The girls' school was housed in two buildings, one in Brightland Road, which was opened in 1814, and the other in Church Street, which was opened in 1853. By 1903 the girls' school was known as St Mary's Girls' School, by 1923 as St Mary's Junior Girls' School and by 1949 as St Mary's Girls' Primary School. From 1956 the school became St Mary's County Junior Girls' School. On 25 July 1958 the Brightland Road premises were closed and those in Church Street on 26 March 1959, and the school moved to new buildings in Victoria Drive, where it was known as Ocklynge Girls' Primary School. On 12 July 1972 Ocklynge County Junior Girls' School was closed and after merger with St Mary's County Junior Boys' School it re-opened in September 1972 as Ocklynge County Junior Mixed School
The boys' school was housed initially in the building in Brightland Road, in the premises in Church Street from 1853 and from 1892 in premises in Green Street. By 1903 the boys' school was known as St Mary's Boys' School, by 1923 as St Mary's Junior Boys' School and by 1949 as St Mary's Boys' Primary School. From 1956 the school became St Mary's County Junior Boys' School. On 12 July 1972 St Mary's County Junior Boys' School was closed and after merger with Ocklynge County Junior Girls' School it re-opened in September 1972 as Ocklynge County Junior Mixed School
Central classes for senior pupils were operated for both the boys' and girls' schools between January 1922 and October 1931 when they were closed due to shortages of funds and pupils, and the pupils transferred to Bedewell Central School and Willowfield Central School
An infants' school was opened in Church Street in 1873 (E/SC/55)
