"This school consists of 72 boys, the largest number, I believe, it has ever attained; and the teaching staff in- cludes, besides the Head Master, one graduate and four teachers. The majority of the boys do Latin, 13 Greek, and 13 French. All do Arithmetic and Mathematics. Great, attention is given to History, Geography, Map- Drawing, English Grammar, Book-Keeping, and Penman- ship. The same principle of thoroughness seems to me to run through the whole work of the school, and character- ises that of the younger boys no less than the senior ones. I was pleased to see in the list of the Cambridge Previous Examination for Easter Term, and which arrived on the day of the distribution of prizes, that Mr. George Evans of Trinity Hall, till April last, and for the previous three years pupil in this school, had passed first class in Classii. s and Mathematics, and also in the additional subjects for honours. Only one other out of 307 candidates passed in his first term, -a fact that speaks for itself. I have great pleasure in bearing testimony to the flourishing condition of this school, and feel sure that the boys have been taught patiently, perseveringly, and with conscientious thoroughness.—H. R. RODERICK, B.A., Exhibitioner of Jesus College, Oxford." The school re-opens on Monday, the 30th day of July.
