    Prior to Bellerby's taking over this school in about 1995 it was known as Mayfield College. Mayfield was founded by the Duchess of Leeds as an Orphanage. In 1868 a Roman Catholic Order of Religous Brothers, known as the Xaverians Brothers, moved from Hastings to run Mayfield College as an independent boys boarding school. The school continued to flourish under the direction of the Brothers until 1977 when, due to a shortage of vocations into the Brothers, the school was taken over by the Mayfield College Educational Trust. It retained strong links with the Brothers several of whom still lived and taught at the College.

    However in about 1995 the Trust felt unable to continue the administration of the school and it was sold to Bellerby's of Wadhurst, they changed the name of the school to Bellerby College, Mayfield. The school has now closed down; about two years ago. In its day Mayfield College owned its own Prep. School at Waldron in East Sussex. This was known as School of St Edward the Confessor, but was often refered to as 'Foxhunt'.

    Thats the history, posted already without place name as it's so mint inside, hats off to J Cadet for this one, his hardwork & research paid off big time! Visited with Minty447 & J Cadet.
