National Union for Improving the Education of Woman of All Classes. Central Committee.We wish to draw your attention to the great need of really good Schools that can be attended at a moderate cost, for the better education of Girls and Young Women. This want was shown to exist by the reports of the Schools Enquiry Commission. The Union for Improving the Education of Women proposes to meet this want, and as the necessary funds are too large to be provided out of private means, and the hope of help from endowments is remote, the experiment is to be tried of raising them by a Limited Liability Company, which will begin by founding a public Day School for Girls in South-west London. This is the scheme for which we ask support, especially by taking Shares. Should this School succeed, similar Schools will be founded in other places wherever wanted. We therefore send you the Prospectus of the proposed School, and also a Circular of the Union, which will explain the objects for which it was founded. On behalf of the Committee, Signed, [facsimile signature:] Princess Louise Marchioness of Lorne. President of the Union.

Maria Georgina Grey (1816-1906) was an educationalist and writer in the United Kingdom who promoted women's education. In 1871 she presented the idea of creating a national movement which would promote women's education to the Society of Arts, which offered great support. With Princess Louise as patroness, she sought to establish good and cheap day schools for all classes above the level of elementary education.
