Blue Coat sculpture

Blue Coat sculpture
Sculpture stands on the site of former Basingstoke Blue Coat School – founded in the 17th century after wealthy businessman Richard Aldworth left money in his 1646 will to set up a school to educate, feed, clothe and apprentice 10 poor children a year.

The Aldworth charity continued funding grammar school education for boys and eventually girls after the school closed in 1880.

The site was eventually demolished in the 1960s as part of the town development.
