NATIONAL  SCHOOL,  HARROGATE  WELLS

 

This school owes its origin to a former Incumbent, but the building itself is the result of the benevolent exertions of the late Incumbent (Rev G Digby) and was built in 1551, at an expense of about 400, chiefly raised amongst the residents and visitors. 

It is a neat building in the Elizabethan style, and is placed in the grounds belonging to the Church of St Mary. It is capable of receiving nearly 200 children, of all denominations, who are taught on the Glasgow system of education. 

It is entirely supported by voluntary subscriptions.
