Queenwood College

Queenwood College was a British public school in operation from 1847–1896. It was located near Stockbridge, Hampshire in England. The site housed a manor that once belonged to Queen Philippa, the wife of Edward III, who had moved her court there in 1335. In 1839, the current owner, Isaac Goldsmid, leased some of the land to socialist textile manufacturer and philanthropist Robert Owen, who used the space to build an experimental socialist community called Harmony Hall. In 1847, educationalist Quaker George Edmondson leased the space and opened Queenwood College as a Quaker school. It was an experimental school dedicated to teaching science. The school closed in 1896.
