A child may receive instruction in a public or private school or at home.
But if the parents wish him to be taught in a private school they must give notice to the mayor of the commune of their intention and the school chosen.
At Morpeth Horsley opened a private school.
In 1832 he was elected fellow of his college, and in the following year he was ordained, and became head master of a private school at Stockwell.
If educated at home, the child (after two years of the compulsory period has expired) must undergo a yearly examination, and if it is unsatisfactory the parents will be compelled to send him to a public or private school.
