Throwback Thursday: St Mary Abbots Church of England Primary School, London

The school was first endowed in 1645 as a free school for the children of the poor. A school was actually built about 1709 elsewhere but they moved to the current building next to St Mary Abbots Church around 1860.

The statues are of a Charity Girl and a Charity Boy. The boy has a pen and a scroll inscribed “I was naked and ye clothed me” and the girl is holding a prayer book.

  1. We visited the church in early February and also stopped to look at this handsome old building. Some great history there.
