Romsey Schools, 900-1940
- The nuns of the tenth century educated the daughters of the aristocracy and royalty. Subsequently education was provided for ordinary children in Romsey. Like most small towns, Romsey had a variety of schools, including charity schools, dame schools and schools run by church or chapel. This book charts the changing pattern of educational provision in Romsey up to the beginning of the Second World War. Thus it sets the scene for the re-organisations that have taken place since 1945.
