[City of London School]

Yesterday week the distribution of prizes to the pupils in the City of London School was also made at the Guildhall Tavern, by the Lord Mayor, who was accompanied by the Sheriffs. The Head Master, the Rev. Dr. Abbott, spoke hopefully of the prospects of the school in connection with the pending opening of the new building on the Victoria Embankment. At the same time he congratulated the company on the University distinctions gained by the pupils.
