In the 1880s, and later, Waverley Terrace in St Saviour's Road was home to what appears to have been a boarding school for boys. It is not clear whether they lived and were educated there as well. These were boys of secondary school age, possibly French.
The school was active for a number of years and photographs of groups of boys outside the distinctive frontage with double steps are still found today. Some were taken by Ernest Baudoux, and later images by Tynan Brothers of Bath Street.
