Queen Margaret's School
Queen Margaret's School

Picture shows Queen Margaret’s School which was located on the corner of Queen Margaret’s Road and Filey.

The school was established in 1901 by the Woodard Foundation, an organisation committed to the establishment of boarding schools where teaching would be firmly based on the Christian religion. Following evacuation to Pitlochry during the First World War, and then to Castle Howard during the Second, the school finally moved to Escrick Park, six miles south of York, in 1949.
