Industrial School for Roman Catholic Girls, Westminster, London

In around 1858, Miss Stanley opened an industrial school for Roman Catholic girls at York Street, Westminster, London SW1. On 2 November 1861 the establishment was accredited as a Certified Industrial School, allowing it to receive girls placed under confinement by the courts. At the end of 1862, only 5 of the school's 25 inmates had been sent there under a magistrate's order.

The school's certificate was withdrawn on 8 March 1864 after Miss Stanley had moved to take over the running of the St Margaret's Industrial School for Girls at Queen Square. The York Street school then reverted to a purely charitably funded establishment.
