Stafford College, FOREST HILL, NEAR THE CRYSTAL PALACE. HEAD MASTER: R. CROSS, F.R.A.S., • TW1^Jra'™Pri?cipal of the Bri(Jgen(i School for 7 years. HE Classics, Modern Languages, Mathematics, Painting, Engineering Drawing, and the other im- portant branches of school work, are taught by Professors of recognized London repute. The College was opened in 1868 with two Pupils, and in a few years the number exceeded 80. The health of the Pupils was, during the whole time referred to, absolutely perfect. This testifies to the r- efficiency of all the domestic arrangements. Further evidence that the Pupils find a superior home at Stafford College may be gathered from the fact that those friends who sent Pupils twelve years ago do so still. The Report of three Public Examiners is to this '1 effect:—"The Education is comprehensive, and correct; ■J and the work done is on a par with that of +he large Public Schools." Parents who seek for their Sons a safe and solid Education, a home for them m a delightful and su- premely healthy position, and the personal fcfnardianshin of their morals by the Principal himself, will do well to apply for a Prospectus.
