(St.) Botolph Aldgate Charity School

   In Victualling Office Square. On the east side of Little Tower Hill, west of and facing the Mint (Lockie, 1810).
   Founded in 1673 for the parish of St. Botolph's. The first Protestant parochial charity school in London, and the first to adopt the national system of education. The freehold was purchased in 1792, and the school erected for 60 boys and 40 girls.
   These buildings were occupied until 1901, when the children were moved to Sir John Cass' Institute (End. Ch. Rep. p. 45, St. Botolph Aldgate Parish), the site being required to make the Tower Bridge Northern Approach.
