Educational charters and documents 598 to 1909 by Arthur Francis Leach( Book )

34 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in English and Latin and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most important historical documents relating to the origins and development of British educational institutions are collected in an accessible way in this volume. From the earliest cathedral schools, through the universities, to the foundation of the late Victorian Schools Trusts, these charters reveal the intentions of the founders and allow comparisons to be made across the centuries. The documents are edited down to the essentials and those originally in Latin are translated. Arthur Francis Leach (1851-1915) was best known for his study The Schools of Medieval England (1915), the first connected history of English schools to the time of the accession of Edward VI. In the field of educational history, Leach was a controversial figure whose sweeping conclusions failed to convince his colleagues, while they admired his research. This volume shows him a careful and sensitive editor of the historical documents central to his work

Early Yorkshire schools by Arthur Francis Leach( Book )

8 editions published between 1899 and 2013 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published for the Yorkshire Archaeological Society in 1903, this second volume of a two-volume survey sets out to collect and put into historical context the extant documentation relating to the foundation and early history of seven Yorkshire schools: Pontefract, Howden, Northallerton, Acaster, Rotherham, Giggleswick and Sedbergh. Although none is as ancient as the three cathedral schools surveyed in the first volume, the documentation - the earliest of which is typically in Latin, while later documents tend to be in English - extends from 1139 and the founding of Pontefract Grammar, takes in Rotherham College from its foundation in 1483, and includes a full record of Sedbergh School, from its genesis in the 1520s through its re-establishment in 1551 and up to the end of the seventeenth century. Arthur Francis Leach (1851-1915), dubbed 'the father of the history of education in England', provides an introductory narrative to accompany these primary sources

Early Yorkshire schools by Arthur Francis Leach( )

8 editions published between 1899 and 2013 in English and Multiple languages and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published for the Yorkshire Archaeological Society in 1899, this first volume of a two-volume survey sets out to collect and put into historical context the extant documentation relating to the foundation and early history of three ancient Yorkshire schools - in York, Beverley and Ripon - from their origins up to the Reformation. The earliest of these is what later became York's St Peter's School, founded in 627 by St Paulinus of York and where Alcuin was an early headmaster. An extract from his Latin poem The Bishops, Kings and Saints of York relating to his time at the school is printed here, alongside a wealth of letters, charters and other documents (many in Latin) concerning the history and traditions of all three schools. Arthur Francis Leach (1851–1915), dubbed 'the father of the history of education in England', provides a narrative account to accompany the primary sources
