The Slackening Tide: Bryanston

  • W. A. C. Stewart


IN THE first prospectus of Bryanston school, issued before the school opened in January 1928, appears the following state-ment:

The Bryanston scheme has been launched to meet the diffi-culty felt both in this country and in the Dominions of gaining admission to our public schools. … Bryanston will therefore be a new English public school in which provision will be made for applicants from throughout the Empire.
