The Admission Register contains an index and the main register for Wingfield School. The index provides the names of the teachers in charge with the dates that they began working at Wingfield and the dates that they left. It also gives the total number of children attending Wingfield School each year.

Access Conditions



The children are listed alphabetically by surname. The main register gives the name of the children, dates of admission, sexes, names of parents or guardians, their addresses, the last school attended, quarterly attendance, and the date of leaving the school. There is a final column for remarks which can include information about where a child went next or the nature of the disability. If a child was a ward of state or living in a children’s home, the register makes a note of that.
