It appears in rough outline on Horwood’s map of 1799, and fully developed, together with Mews to both sides, on his map of 1807

This area was undeveloped fields until the early eighteenth century

It was presumably named for its location near Guilford Street

No numbers appear on Horwood’s maps

There was a pub, the Red Lion, there in the 1820s (The Times, 3 June 1824); there were also livery stables (The Times, 10 June 1825)

At the end of the century, the pub was still there, but had become the Old Red Lion (The Times, 11 June 1883); there was also now a school, Christ Church School (The Times, 26 November 1888), presumably associated with nearby Christ Church, Woburn Square

By the latter part of the century the street had become a slum; in 1897 the leases fell in and the street was sold, along with Little Coram Street, to the LCC in 1898 (Donald Olsen, Town Planning in London, 2nd edn, 1984)

It was incorporated into the new Herbrand Street development in 1901.

Camden’s students celebrate A-level results
Celebrations were today taking place across Camden, after students at the borough’s schools received their A-level results. Provisional figures show that the overall pass rate at grades A* to E in Camden is 98.1%, which is above the national average of 97.9%. This year’s figures mean that half of all Camden A-level entries were a grade higher than last year, which is a strong result for the borough’s schools. Councillor Angela Mason CBE, Cabinet Member for Children, Schools and Families, was at Haverstock School, in Chalk Farm, where she joined students and the school’s new headteacher, James Hadley, to celebrate their results. Among the top performing A-level students at Haverstock School were Mohammed Miah, who got two A*s and one A; Nadirah Miah, with two As and a B, as well as Deneice McIntosh and Saye Monnan, each of whom gained one A and two Bs in their A-levels. James Hadley, new headteacher at Haverstock, said: “We are delighted that our students’ hard work has been rewarded. With these fantastic qualifications, combined with the experience that they have gained from our award-winning Haverstock Career Network, they are fully equipped to be successful in the next stage of their lives.” Delighted Haverstock student Abdisamed Abdi, 18, is off to Brunel University in London to study law. He got three Bs in his A-levels, which were English literature, English language and economics. Abdisamed, who admitted he had a sleepless night before picking up his results, said he was thrilled to have got into his first choice university after getting three Bs in his A-levels. He said: “Brunel was my firm choice and I’ve wanted to go there for ages.” Cllr Mason later joined students at Camden School for Girls, where the percentage of A* and A grades was an amazing 48%, up seven per cent from last year. Several students from the school have places at Oxford and Cambridge universities this year. Among them is Esther Pigney, 18, who will be studying classics at Oxford University after gaining an A* in her Latin A-level and As in classical Greek, English literature and maths. Another top student at Camden School for Girls is Osman Umuayman, 18, whose family came to the UK as refugees from Somalia. She will be the first in her family to go to university and has a place to study medicine at Cambridge University’s Trinity College. Meanwhile at LaSWAP, which is the joint sixth form for four Camden secondary schools (Acland Burghley, William Ellis, Parliament Hill and La Sainte Union), top performing students included Jam Byam, 18, of Parliament Hill School and LaSWAP.Jam got A* in English literature, A* in film studies and an A in geography. She is going to King’s College London to study English literature. She said: “I decided not to look online to see if my university offer had been accepted and just headed to the school to get my results. But I had to get my close friend to open my envelope and read the results for me. It was such a relief and now I’m ecstatic.”Another LaSWAP student, Saskia Hern, gained one A*, two As and a B and is off to study biochemistry at Oxford University. Saskia said: “I’m really happy. I was worried I’d miss the A* to get to Oxford. My parents have promised me a takeaway when I get home!”Eva Dalmau, 18, who lives in Hampstead and attends LaSWAP Sixth Form, gained an A in history, an A in Spanish and a B in religious studies. She is going to Manchester University to study law.Eva said: “Having grown up in Spain I started school in England at 16 and initially I struggled to adapt to the English system, but I worked hard and I’m really relieved to get these results and know that my hard work paid off.”La Sainte Union’s headteacher, Maureen Williams, whose school is one of the four LaSWAP schools, said: “We are delighted with the results and improvements across LaSWAP, especially in the top grades and given the context of grade marks being altered and the more rigorous exams this year. Students and teachers had to work harder to achieve similar grades, so credit is due to all of those involved in this achievement.”Acland Burghley headteacher Nicholas John, whose school is also one of the four LaSWAP schools, said: “The collective experience and knowledge of the four LaSWAP schools means we can handle any changes to national specifications and still deliver excellent grades and progression rates. Our students are going to universities across the country, whether they are our highest performers or those who have secured university places despite the challenges they have faced.”Young people receiving their results in Camden today are reminded that, in addition to higher education options they may be considering, apprenticeship positions offer opportunities to earn while you learn, get a foot on the career ladder, and some apprentice posts can also lead to a degree.

OTHER HERBRAND STREET, WC1N ENTRIES

Little Guildford Street
(1720-1901)

Herbrand Street, WC1N
(1901-now)

Herbrand Street, WC1N

Herbrand Street is in the east of Bloomsbury, running south from Tavistock Place to Guilford Street.

It was developed out of the remains of Colonnade Mews, Little Coram Street, and Little Guilford Street.

Most of its east side was on the Foundling estate (apart from the land sold to the Peabody Trust and the parish of St George’s Bloomsbury in the 1870s), while the west side was on the Bedford estate

It was built in 1901, occupying the former footprint of Colonnade Mews, Little Coram Street, and Little Guilford Street, with some buildings from these streets surviving to become part of the new street

It was named after Herbrand Russell, eleventh Duke of Bedford and first Mayor of the new Borough of Holborn

It was mainly intended to sweep away the worst of previous slums.

In the twentieth century it held an eclectic mixture of pubs, residential accommodation of various kinds, and a landmark Art Deco garage building
