Burslem Board School


Location 16 on the index map


Top of Bournes Bank is the Burslem National School

A three-story structure erected in 1817 at a cost of 2000. 
It was built to accommodate 600 children but was half empty 
in 1840 because most parents preferred to send their 
children to the Methodist schools and to Burslem Sunday School. 

This building can be seen on the 1851 map of St. John's Church


next is the Parish Church of St. John
