MILL HILL SCHOOL.
Some educationists maintain that the age of large private schools has passed away, but Mill Hill School, after undergoing a period of depression, more than holds its own, and is now regarded as the best distinctly Nonconformist establishment of the kind in the country. It was founded as long ago as 1807, but was reconstituted under the direction of the Court of Chancery in 1869. The school-house, an imposing building, as our picture shows, is delightfully situated on high ground in the prettiest part of Middlesex, not far from Edgware and Hendon. Mr. J. D. McClure is the present headmaster of Mill Hill, which has for motto the words, "Et virtutem et musas" and there is a flourishing Old Boys' Association.
