William Gibbs School

A plaque on a building with fine terracotta decorations in Orchard Place, Faversham, recalls that it was the William Gibbs School for Girls. The school was founded in 1883 by Richard Gibbs, who made a fortune as a tea-trader, in memory of his father, William Gibbs, who saved Faversham archaeological relics to form a collection now in the British Museum. The school merged with Faversham's boys' grammar school to form today's Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School. The building was made into flats in 1994.
