217. Grenham House
Boys aged down to 7 were forced to enter a regime consisting of fear and corporal punishment. Today such a school would have been closed. A student died there. Fortunately while tragic caused by an illness and not the awful violence the employees were responsible for.
The boarding school is closed now. However it is still safe to state that it was not a place for children to stay while the school was in existence.
