The Ragged Schools of Angel Meadow by Simon Ward

  • The Castle Hotel Oldham St Manchester United Kingdom

In the early 1800s, state contribution to education was less than the amount the government spent on the King’s stables. This talk will look at how The Ragged School movement led to the 1870 Education Act and state funding of universal education.

We will take a closer look at two of Manchester’s Ragged Schools. Their fascinating history takes us from basket weaving, badminton and bombs to Suffragettes and Coronation Street.
