Charity scholars

Christ's Hospital was known as the Bluecoat School but there are no little blue people that we could see in Newgate Street. However we understand there are more statues inside and also in St Bride’s church Fleet Street, the church hall of St Botolph’s Church Bishopsgate and the galleries at the Museum of London.

It seems to be the rule that the boy is on the left and the girl on the right.
