Children of the British School in Wotton-under-Edge file out through the columned porch of the building into the sunshine, as they go off to lunch. The original caption states that it is classed by the County Education authorities as a "non-provided school (which means, roughly, that the CC is responsible for everything but the provision and maintenance of the actual school building and that religious instruction may be given in accordance with the trust deed of the school)". The school was founded in 1843, and the first headmaster was Isaac Pitman, the inventor of shorthand.
