This is a story of childhood in the York Charity Schools, which were founded in 1705. I was a Grey Coat Girl in the nineteen forties and was taught alongside the Blue Coat Boys. By this time the Institutions were an anachronism, although still serving a useful purpose in providing a training for domestic service. Girls and boys emerged from the schools as worthy citizens, but thoroughly institutionalised.

The Second World War years played their part in changing the society in which the children would live on leaving the schools, yet, in their unchanging routines, they knew little of what awaited them outside their enclosed world.

The Charity Schools have long since closed, but these pages are written to commemorate affectionately an important part of the Social and Local History of York.
