Girls' Industrial School, Balham, London
An inspection report published in 1890 gave a broadly positive account of the establishment which was now being superintended by Sister Louisa Mary, with Miss Twigg as schoolmistress. However, no further mention is made of the School in official reports so it presumably closed at around that date.
Note: many repositories impose a closure period of up to 100 years for records identifying individuals.
- No records noted at present for this establishment — any information welcome.
