The Education Act of 1870 established a system of free primary education for all children in Britain. Secondary education was still only available to those who could afford private tutorial fees at so-called public schools.

This is an advertisement for one such school, the Regent House Academy in London. The money for each term had to be paid in advance and it was the responsibility of the parents to ensure that their children continued to attend. A boys-only school, it offered a wide variety of subjects: geography, history and spelling all feature in the timetable, along with more practical subjects such as book keeping and letter writing.
