EDUCATION IN OLD PLYMOUTH

MANNAMEAD SCHOOL

Mannamead School was founded on July 25th 1854 by Doctor Peter Holmes, who had just resigned his post as headmaster of the Corporation Grammar School.

The School occupied a site in Seymour Road, Mannamead, Plymouth, that was later taken over by another private school, Moorfields School for Girls.

In 1896 Mannamead School was amalgamated with Plymouth College.

One of its most celebrated pupils was the author, Mr Eden Phillpotts.
