City of London School

School where William Hill went before entering Cambridge.

The turn of the century saw consolidation of the innovative trends in the curriculum....... English teaching and the School’s strong links with publishing and journalism were reinforced by the Northcliffe grants to commemorate the death in the Boer War of G W Steevens, the pioneer war reporter.  The illustrator Arthur Rackham and the publishers G Newnes, T Unwin and the map maker E Stanford all belonged to this generation; as did C T Ritchie, creator of the LCC, and Home Secretary and Chancellor of the Exchequer in Lord Salisbury’s governments.  At this time the CCF was revived and, adapting to changed times, has flourished ever since.  In 1907 the School was reorganized into houses, and in the same year was begun the Mission, ancestor of the present Annual Charity Appeal.
