On the 1901 census I have a distant relation as a pupil at Montrose House School, Godwin Road. It is clearly a girls boarding school and it is noticeable that nearly all the pupils and the teachers give London area birthplaces, whereas the domestic staff are locally born. The headmistress is unmarried Emma Bailey (age 44) and the next three teachers on the census are her three spinster sisters. There are 51 female pupils aged 8 to 18.

I wonder if perhaps the school was originally located in London and moved to the coast for the clean air.

the census reference is piece 824; folio 7; page 6; registration district Thanet.
