Coopers’ School

The Coopers’ Company’s School in Tredegar Square, Bow.  At this time Mr George Frederick Perrot had just taken over as Headmaster from Rev. Henry Pinder. The school’s motto was ‘Aut Disce Aut Discede, Manet Sors Tertia Caedi’, roughly translated as ‘ Either Learn or Leave; there remains a third fate – being beaten’.  ‘Love as Brethren’ it seems came later!
