Stanley Trade School

Categories: Education

Founded by W. F. R. Stanley as the Stanley Technical Trade School. It was taken control of by Philip Harris, and Croydon Council and the local community of South Norwood agreed that it should be called the Harris Academy at Stanley. In 2007 however, Harris unilaterally decided that the school should be called the Harris Academy South Norwood.

The Listing entry says "The Trade School was the first in this country, and still operates."
