REPORT, by the Rev. John ALLEN, on the State of several

Schools in the Counties of Chester, Derby, and Lancaster. MY LORDS,

On the 29th of March, 1841, I was instructed to proceed to the inspection of 52 schools in Derbyshire, Cheshire, and Lancashire. They were all connected with the Church of England. Eleven of them having been aided by your Lordships, were formally liable to inspection, the 41 others had invited the visits of Her Majesty's Inspectors. Of these 41 schools 39 had been aided by the Lords of the Treasury:

I left London on the evening of the 29th of March and returned on the 30th of April.

Previous to my departure I waited on the Right Reverend the Bishops of Chester and Lichfield; the kind assistance which their Lordships gave me proved of considerable service to the furthermy

Of the 41 schools that invited inspection, 7 are in operation only as Sunday-schools; 2 are in the district of Furness, so as to be most accessible from Cumberland or Westmoreland; I was omitted by an oversight; and 3 were visited, but, from circumstances over which I had no control, were not in. spected: of the remaining 28 I subjoin in the Appendix detailed accounts. Again-of the 11 schools aided by your Lordships, one is at present used only as a Sunday-school, another was to be opened as an infant-school in a fortnight after my visit, the remaining 9 added to the 28 mentioned above make in all 37 schools visited and reported on.

A table in the Appendix gives the names of the inspected schools, classifying some of the results ascertained; from which it appears that out of the 37 schools reported on, 5 were dame-schools, 8 were infant-schools, 16 were schools under a master in which boys and girls were assembled in the same room, 7 were schools in which under a master and a mistress the boys and girls were taught in separate rooms, and one was a school exclusively for girls.

Of the dame-schools little can be said; as far as I could observe, the mistresses commonly seemed gentle, right-minded women, and with a single exception they were neat in their persons; one could not however help regretting that the school building was not so applied as to be the means of imparting more efficient instruction; in one of these cases where the mere structure had cost above £300, and in which more than 70 children were assembled on the day of my visit, the mistress (a good worker) was unable either to write or to detect the most gross errors of spelling, and a. large portion of the children were sitting wholly unemployed. Of these five schools, two were aided by a grant from your Lordships. The largest number of children that I found in a dame
