Lady Eleanor Holles School

Lady Eleanor Holles School

Group  From 1711 

Categories: Education

Founded near what is now the Barbican. One of the oldest girls' schools in the country, this was established when a trust for its endowment as a Christian foundation was created under the will of Lady Eleanor Holles (d. 1711), daughter of the second Earl of Clare. That's the official version but apparently records show the school operating earlier than 1711. The school moved from its original site to other premises in the City until 1878, when it moved to Mare Street in Hackney (in the building now, 2013, used by the London College of Fashion) and then to Hampton.
