Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    Consult the Consignment Details for the volume containing the date range for which information is sought.

  • Function / Content
    The Denominational Schools Board was established in 1848 and was responsible for the distribution of funds to denominational schools from an annual Parliamentary grant and a proportion of the Church and Schools Estates revenue.

    This series contains the records accumulated by the Board with respect to their accreditation of teachers. Most are on standard pro forma with some being hand-written. Subjects in which teachers were examined are listed with the grading given, the date and the Inspector's signature. For all teachers the name is given but for some there are details of their present appointment, details of age and marital status, testimonials and reports from an Inspector of Schools.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Each volume contains 100 reports. Numbers at the top of each report indicate the volume number and the number within the volume (e.g. number 2295 indicates the 95th report in volume 22). Candidates examined more than once have the numbers of prior examinations at the top of the sheet. Reports in volumes 1 to 5 may have a copy of their 1858 report attached to previous reports.
