Scope and content
By 1864 there was a Surrey Congregational Union Chapel on the site of the present school. It was then in use as a school room. The Croydon School Board took over the building on 1 August 1871 and it was used as a girls' and infants' school until 1873 when the infants moved to a separate room. This is Croydon's oldest Board School by 14 days. Administrative papers: 1871 - 1890, CBC/3/2/11; 1891 - 1903, CBC/3/2/12; 1903 - 1924, CBC/3/2/13; 1924 - 1945, CBC/3/2/14. There is a history of the school in "The Beulah Story 1873-1973" by Albert E. Oliver in the Local History collection.
