The College of Preceptors was incorporated in 1849, by Royal Charter, "for the purpose of promoting sound learning and of advancing the interests of Education, more especially among the middle classes.” The principal means employed to secure these objects are: Ist. The periodical examination of teachers and of pupils. 2nd. The union of teachers of every class in a corporate body, so that they may have a recognized position on a par with that enjoyed by the other learned professions. 3rd. The making of provision for the families of deceased, aged, and poor members. 4th. The providing of a medium of communication between Principals of Schools and Assistants of good character and attainments. 5th. The periodical bringing together of teachers for the discussion of subjects in which the scholastic profession is interested.

The annual subscription is One Guinea. There is no entrance fee. A single payment of Ten Guineas confers the privi lege of Life Membership.

All persons engaged in education are admissible as Members of the Corporation ; and persons desirous of joining it, or of promoting its objects, may, on application to ue secretary, obtain all necessary information, together with copies of the Bye-Laws, ud of the Regulations respecting the Examinations of Candidate for the College Diplomas and of the Pupils of Schools in Union with the College.

The Charter empowers the College to hold Examinations and to grant Diplomas and Certificates of Proficiency to such persons of both sexes as have passed tho Examinations satisfactorily.

The Examinations of Pupils are held twice in each year, beginning on the third Monday in May, and on the third Monday in November. The First Class Certificates of the College are recognized by the General Medical Council as guarantees of good general education, and by the Royal College of Surgeons of England as exempting their possessors from the preliminary literary examination recently instituted by that body, the conducting of which has been entrusted to the Board of Examiners of the College of Preceptors. The Pharmaceutical Society also recognizes in a similar way all the College Certificates the holders of which have passed the Examination in Latin.

The Examinations for the College Diplomas also take place twice a-year, in the Midsummer and in the Christmas Vacations. These examinations are arranged with special reference to the requirements and circumstances of School-Assistants: and one of their distinctive features is, that the theory and practice of education is included in them as a leading and indispensable subject.

Monthly Meetings of the Members are held for the reading and discussion of Papers on educational subjects,
