Fitzmaurice School , Bradford on Avon
from Rev. W.H. Jones`s History of Bradford on Avon:|
The establishment of a Technical School, the handsome buildings of which were designed by Mr. T. B. Silcock of Bath. This the town owes to the munificence of Lord Edmond Fitzmaurice, assisted by Mr. E. Pincknsy, Sir C. Hobhouse, The Cloth-workers' Company, and others.
The handsome building of this Institution was opened for use in 1897. The cost of erection was mainly provided Private Subscriptions, including £1075 from Lord Edmond Fitzmaurice, M.P.
Wilts County Council, under Technical Instruction Acts - £935
Bradford Urban District Council - £500

Considerable additional gifts have since been made by Lord Edmond Fitzmaurice, including the cost (upwards of £600} an excellent gymnasium. There are several scholarships connected with the school; and it is proposed, as has I already stated, to utilize the annual income of the ci-devant FreeSchool in this direction, The headmaster is Mr. J. Crompton M.A. The Chairman of the Governors is Lord Edmond Fitzmaurice. The constitution of the Board is in course of alteration under a proposed scheme by the Department.
