Collegiate School, Long Street

By 1870 the Collegiate school was headed by John Welsh Keiller, and situated on Long Street.  
In 1871 there were 43 boarding pupils and schoolmasters John Mackie, Samuel Henry Crew and Gustave Palin, from France.  Six servants were in residence, from cook to parlour maid.
In 1875 the house next door came up for sale and Mr Keiller bought it, and boarded the pupils there.
In 1881 there were 13 pupils boarded, and four servants in residence.  There was an Assisant master, who taught French, Gastin Hirve, and a music master F.D.Baxter.
He died in 1885 and Mrs Keiller put the school up for sale.
The 1891 census shows George Marshall AL-MS, his wife and four children, along with one pupil, one governess and one servant. [If anyone can supply the correct surname I would love to correct the above!]
The Tetbury Advertiser, January 1900, said that it offered 'modern education at moderate cost' in 'one of the healthiest positions in the Cotswolds.
