Taunton College School

    Article metrics


    WE are sorry to chronicle the extinction of a school once watched with interest by all supporters of scientific education. The company which formed it is insolvent; the school buildings with the fine library and all the collections and apparatus which the late headmaster amassed will be sold for the benefit of the creditors; the shareholders will lose their money; and the town will fall back for its higher education on the old, dilapidated, unhealthy grammar school.
