School inspectors worried about temptation in Crich School
This could have been a headline in the year 1864. At that time there were strict rules about unmarried headmasters working alongside unmarried members of staff. Crich Parochial School (now Crich Infants) had headmaster Mr John Radford and newly arrived assistant teacher Miss Annie Gosling on the staff. The School Inspectors (called HMI) had to agree to Miss Gosling's appointment. They were rather worried, as the entry in the school logbook shows.
