St John's College, Walpole Road, Brighton
St John's is a school and college for young people with special educational needs: see LinkExternal link.
The site was founded as a children's convalescent home in 1875 by Sister Jane Borradaile; the modern college honours her by naming one of its houses Borradaile. The home provided services to, among others, the Waifs and Strays Society which later became the Church of England Children's Society, and was taken over by that society in 1938. It functioned as a convalescent home until the late 1940s, becoming a special school in the mid 1950s. For more details of the home's history, see the Children's Society's "Hidden Lives Revealed" website at LinkExternal link.
