Statues of schoolboys and girls were a common feature of charity school buildings. This schoolboy, made from 'Coade stone', a compound of clay and other materials moulded in imitation of carved stonework and fired in a kiln, originally adorned the entrance to Lawrence Charity School, Lambeth Green. It was later moved to Lambeth Parochial Boy’s School, Hercules Road and then to Archbishop Temple’s Boys’ School, Lambeth Road.
