Having found an ancestor at the school, I looked for more information and on the "wokhouses" site there is an amazing first hand account of a child's experiences there.
Anyone with impoverished London roots would find it very interesting - it is so graphic and simply written - I found it fascinating in its own right :)

Workhouse - the Story of Workhouses (http://users.ox.ac.uk/~peter/workhouse/)

Sorry - it won't link directly!
It is titled W H R's Story and can be found under Education in the Workhouse and then click on the St Olave bit of the map. There is a link to the whole thing from there.
