The nineteenth-century British Co-operative Movement included a commitment to education. Although only a minority of consumer co-operative societies offered educational facilities for their members, there was a willingness to experiment among those Co-operators whose grasp of Co-operation extended ideologically beyond remaining content with operating shops. This pioneering strand found its most advanced expression at Wallsend, on Tyneside, where Co-operators founded the Movement's only Co-operative elementary school.
