Welcome to the Rossbret Reformatories Website
A Reformatory School was an Institution for the Industrial training of Juvenile Offenders. They were Residential, where clothing, food, lodging were supplied whilst they were given training. They were not classified the same as Industrial Schools which were for potential and not actual offenders.
Juveniles up to the age of sixteen were sent to Reformatory School when convicted of an offence punishable by imprisonment. The order for detention was made by the Court, and the maximum limit for a Reformatory or Industrial School was the age of nineteen.
