The British School

On 28the February 1851 the British School, run by the non-conformists under the influence of the British and Foreign Bible School Society, opened on what is now the site next to Barclays Bank near the corner of Gaynes and Station Roads. The British School, with its "spacious, airy and light" schoolroom which was "considered large enough for the requirements of 150 children", was built by the local builder William Hook on land given by Edward Dawson of Aldcliff Hall, Lancaster.
