HC Deb 15 July 1909 vol 7 c2292

asked the President of the Board of Education if he can state the education authorities that have up to the present established open-air or forest schools; and whether he can see his way to recommend that the education committees of the large cities and towns make similar experiments?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Runciman)

Open-air schools were established during the year 1908 by the local education authorities for London, Halifax, Bradford, and Norwich. The Board are always ready to entertain applications for the recognition of schools of this character under Article 44 (g) of the Code.
