New Earswick School opens

New Earswick School is formally opened in 1912 by Walter Runciman, a Minister in David Lloyd George’s government.The school’s pioneering design is spacious, light and airy. Its curriculum is based on the belief that reading at an early age offers the best opportunity for children to learn for themselves. Perhaps most innovatively,  boys and girls are taught the same subjects.
