Who are our classes named after?

North- Marianne North was a world-famous botanist and artist. She travelled around the world exploring plants and landscapes. She is famous for her detailed paintings which are displayed in Kew Gardens. Marianne North is an inspiration to our class because she was passionate and worked hard in her field to become an expert. In addition, she defied tradition for women in Victorian times and followed her own path by travelling solo and pursuing a career.

Cuffay- William Cuffay rejected the Owenite trade unions of the London tailors. He went on strike with his fellow tailors in 1834, demanding a ten-hour workday from April to July and an eight-hour day during the rest of the year with pay of 6 shillings and 5 pence a day. The strike collapsed, Cuffay was sacked and subsequently blacklisted from employment. He was a significant player in having the Master and Servant act amended, so employers could no longer have their employees imprisoned if they left their jobs without permission.

Bowden-Frank Bowden was born in Devon, England, and made a fortune in property development in Hong Kong in the 1870s. In 1879, he married Amelia Frances, an American heiress. When he returned from Hong Kong he was seriously ill and his doctor gave him six months to live. Bowden took up cycling on his doctor's advice and bought a bicycle from a small shop on Raleigh Street, Nottingham, run by Messrs Woodhead, Angois and Ellis. He was so impressed with his recovering health and the bicycle that in 1887–88 he acquired control of the company, which was then making three bicycles a week.[1] Production rose, and three years later Bowden needed a bigger workshop, which he found in a four-storey building in Russell Street. He changed the company's name to Raleigh Cycles to commemorate the original address. By 1896 it was the largest bicycle manufacturer in the world and occupied seven and a half acres in Faraday Road, Nottingham. He lived at The Ropewalk, Nottingham.
