The Ragged School History

Originally opened in 1867 by Dr Barnardo the Ragged School Museum has a very colourful history. When Dr. Barnardo came to London from Ireland in 1866 he arrived to a city that was rife with poverty, disease and overcrowding and educational opportunities for the poor were non-existent. He gave up his medical training after watching the Cholera epidemic sweep through London to become a missionary and in 1867 he opened his first 'Ragged School' which offered children a free basic education.

When it closed in 1908 the Government schools had opened in the area which served the needs of the local families. The buildings then became warehouses for the goods that were being transported along Regent's Canal, before being rescued by The Ragged School Museum Trust.

The Ragged School Museum is housed in a group of three canalside buildings which once formed the largest ragged or free school in London. Thomas Barnardo came to London from his home city of Dublin in 1866 intending to train as a doctor and then a missionary in China. When he arrived he was confronted by a city where disease was rife, poverty and overcrowding endemic and educational opportunities for the poor were non-existent.

He watched helplessly as a cholera epidemic swept through the East End, leaving over 3,000 Londoners dead and many destitute. Barnardo gave up his medical training to pursue his local missionary works and in 1867 opened his first Ragged School where children could gain a free basic education. Ten years later, Barnardo's Copperfield Road Free School opened its doors to children and for the next thirty-one years educated tens of thousands of children.

The event runs from 9pm - 3am - Over 18's only.
