Education During the Victorian Period Education during the Victorian Period progressed due to several acts and codes over the years Voluntary schools which the Church provided were founded by the Anglican National Society after the grant of 1833 was proposed The grant went to religious bodies which were used to build schools It was the first acceptance by the government to provide the poor with an education The grant increased to 30000 pounds in 1839 and then to 100000 pounds in 1846 These voluntary schools were paid for by private subscription and were spread out over the country Gladstones Bill of 1870 was the work of WE Forster who was an ardent churchman of Quaker origin The bill doubled the State Grant to church schools and to Roman Catholic schools so they could become a permanent part of the new educational system There were seven elite boarding schools that were defined as Public Schools in the 1860s by the educational Clarendon commission They were Eton Harrow Westminster Rugby Winchester Charterhouse and Shrewsbury They were maintained by private funding and received no profits The Code of 1890 made it possible to maintain evening continuation schools which we think are night schools The new schools were known as Board Schools and they were paid for by local rates or by the local school boards Church teaching continued in all national schools Before this all the churches had to provide the education The Roman Catholics and the Anglicans wouldnt let their children go to these schools though They felt that these schools did not adequately teach their religious ideas Board schools were introduced and the Roman Catholics and the Anglicans agreed that these schools satisfied all their educational needs The acts of 1876 and 1880 made attendance in schools necessary During the first few years of Queen Victorias reign 30-50 of the children went to school The most common schools were Sunday schools
