Abstract only
Log-in for full text

One way in which young refugees might gain the right of entry to Britain was by offering proof of their acceptance by a British school, although they still required a British sponsor who would guarantee to cover the costs. Britain's twelve Quaker boarding schools are said to have offered 100 scholarships to refugees. Winchester College offered five free places to refugees, which were advertised by the Earl Baldwin Fund. Amongst the prestigious private, fee-paying secondary schools in the Manchester region which offered places to refugees in 1938 and 1939 either at no cost or at a reduced rate, were Manchester High School for Girls, Kingsmoor School in Glossop, Culcheth Hall School in Bowdon and Bury Grammar School.
