School report for Winston Churchill issued by St. George's School, Ascot, November 1883
Winston was sent to boarding school just a few weeks prior to his eighth birthday. His willful and rebellious nature clashed with the strict disciplinary regime at St. George's School, Ascot, where he was often caned. Even so, this report for the end of his first year cannot hide his potential and interest in the study of history. In later years Winston wrote, "Where my reason, imagination or interest were not engaged, I would not or I could not learn."
