The Foundling Hospital ceases to exist when all boarding pupils leave The Thomas Coram School. By this time more than 27,000 children have benefited from the Hospital’s pioneering care.
The School is renamed Ashlyn’s School, and the Hospital becomes known as The Thomas Coram Foundation for Children. It plays a pioneering role in fostering, adoption, early years provision and parenting programmes over the next half century.
Her Majesty The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh visit Coram to celebrate its 270th birthday.
Coram extends its support to children by acquiring children’s charity Life Education. It calls this new area of expertise Coram Life Education.
Hetty Feather, a novel by Dame Jacqueline Wilson, is published, relaying the story of a young girl’s experience of being brought up by the Foundling Hospital from a tender age.
