About the book

The story of the Mount School began in the 18th century when pupils travelled to York by stage coach. From its origins in Castlegate to its present home, the Mount quickly developed a reputation for academic excellence, social enlightenment and the training of young women as teachers. Its pupils included the daughters of most of the leading Quaker families of the Victorian era, including the Tukes, Cadburys, Rowntrees and many more associated with some of Britain's great industries, banking and Parliamentary or social reforms.

An absorbing and engaging read, beautifully written, well researched and enriched by anecdotes and photographs, this book will delight past and present staff, scholars, parents and friends of the Mount and anyone with an interest in educational Quaker and York history.
