The time was largely spent in consultation with the teachers as to plans for next year & the discussion of some of the difficulties of teaching Catechism. The teachers all seem to be keen about their work & there is every hope that during the coming year their efforts will result in a marked growth of devotional tone among the scholars & also of their thoughtful grasp of the facts & practical bearing of Bible & Catechism.

271 1921 08 23 Inspected 8th & 14th July 1921.
272 1921 08 23 Report by H.M.I. Mr. A.L. Thornton.
273 1921 08 23 'The Head Mistress has the assistance of two zealous teachers whose classes are being well prepared, particularly in their English subjects. The tone & spirit throughout the School are so delightful & the aims so high that it should be comparatively easy to reach a good all-round standard. At the inspection one or two subjects called for some comment. The Drawing often remains crude; some of the work in Geography & History is disappointing in that the children's knowledge is not sufficient for them to derive much benefit from the syllabus provided; the Composition Exercises are well written & expressed but should contain a greater proportion of original exercises & less reproduction.

438 1924 04 14 School inspected on 28th & 29th February 1924. Report by Miss F.M. Tann H.M.I.
439 1924 04 14 'This small Girls' School is arranged in three groups, the Headmistress taking the top group which corresponds to Sts. V, VI & VII. The two lower groups are very carefully taught & their progress is quite satisfactory. The children show keen appreciation of their stories and poetry and are able to express themselves fluently in written composition. A rather higher standard of accuracy might be aimed at in Arithmetic in all classes. The response is relatively not quite so good in the top group, though a real enjoyment of Literature shows itself in discussion of books which have been read. From St. III upwards an attempt is made to train the girls in the use of text books for History and Geography; this should be a great value but the copying of notes is not a very useful exercise & its place might be taken by more practice in writing answers to very definite questions.
440 1924 04 14 It is disappointing to find that the treatment of Drawing shows little or no improvement since the last Inspection. The Needlework is carefully planned and on the whole carried out well; perhaps the use of the machine might be deferred until the girls reach St. VI, so that they attain a really good standard of hand-sewing first.

522 1925 07 24 I inspected your School on July 10th 1925 and was very favourable impressed by my visit. The girls sang most capably. A wider selection of first rate tunes would be made possible by the use of the Transition Tune Book. A good knowledge of the Bible & Prayer Book was displayed. The very drastic 'modernisation' of the Commandments by Our Lord should always be kept in mind when they are taught. The written work reached a high standard, the children showing a welcome ability to interpret a parable and estimate a Biblical character as well as to repeat Scripture.
