Records of Gainsborough Holy Trinity Schools. The General Charity School for boys in Trinity Street (originally founded in 1784) was placed in connection with the National Society in 1847 in order to become eligible for government grants. An Infants' National School was opened in Beckey Lane [Etherington Street?] by 1849, and moved to new premises in Trinity Street with girls as a Mixed School in August 1872. Separate Girls' and Infants' Schools were formed at the beginning of 1878. The management of the Holy Trinity Schools was delegated by the Gainsborough National Schools Committee [SR/241] to a Managing Committee, including elected parents or subscribers, from 1872 until 1903, when separate Foundation Managers were appointed. The three schools were closed on 23 July 1930. Senior boys were transferred to Gainsborough Sandsfield Lane Senior Boys' School (later the Benjamin Adlard School) [SR/230] and senior girls were transferred to Gainsborough Lea Road Senior Girls' School [SR/252]. Infants were transferred to Gainsborough St. John's Infants' School, and the other children were transferred to Gainsborough St. John's Junior Mixed School [both at SR/251].
