public_access_description
Prizes for scholastic achievement were awarded from at least the sixteenth century onward. This example was won by Jeanne (Jane) Hook Cope, a pupil at the Misses Atkins' Boarding School in Mile End, (then in Middlesex, now in East London). During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in the UK, modern languages such as French and Italian were part of a curriculum grouping described as "accomplishments", and considered most suitable for the education of girls. This grouping also included music and art; girls might additionally be taught some literature, history and geography, but it would be very unusual for them to have access to the subjects more typically taught to boys: Latin, Greek, grammar, mathematics, logic or astronomy. Girls were also expected to learn domestic skills such as cooking and sewing.
