EDUCATION IN OLD PLYMOUTH

PLYMOUTH SUBSCRIPTION CLASSICAL AND MATHEMATICAL SCHOOL

The Plymouth Subscription Classical and Mathematical School was founded in 1822.  It was a private school.

Robert Brindley's Directory of 1830 lists the following officers of the establishment: President, Captain Dolling, Royal Navy; Vice-President, Captain Barnard, Royal Navy; Registrar, Mr J Moore; Treasurer, Mr Edward Scott; Secretary, Mr Henry Marshall; Head Master, Reverend J H Macauly MA; Assistant Masters, W Ferrier AB and W C Bellhouse AB; French Master, Monsieur Galopin; Writing Master, Mr E T Nugent; and Drawing Master, Mr H I Johns.

This became known as the New Grammar School, resulting in the old Grammar School re-titling itself as the Corporation Grammar School.

In 1866, the Plymouth Subscription Classical and Mathematical School was amalgamated in to the Corporation Grammar School.
