Maidenhead Schools
« on: Wednesday 24 May 06 23:10 BST (UK) »
My Grandmother was born in 1896 in Maidenhead.  She is shown in the 1901 Census as living in Denmark Street.  Can anyone suggest what school she might have attended?  Any ideas at all would be much appreciated.

The nearest (primary) school to Denmark Street is St Luke's.  It is still there.

Thank you so much for this information - in fact my Gran's parents were married in St. Lukes Church so it could follow that she went to St. Lukes School.  I am thrilled to know it still exists, hope I will be able to get to Maidenhead sometime to visit. 

Does anyone know if school records were kept from this time(early 1900s) and if it is possible to view them?

Berkshire Record Office probably hold the records for the school.  Contact them to check:

Windsor & Maidenhead is now a unitary authority and I am not aware that it has a record office or archive.

The Berkshire Unitary Authorities share the record office and Library Service and a number of other things like that.

Berkshire as a council of course no longer exists except for those of us interested in history.  Its nearly as dead as Middlesex.

Grandmother's maiden name was Bishop.  The family also has
connections with Cordwallis Road and Ray Park.
