Burney's Academy at Gosport

Dr. Burney's Academy, founded 1791 by Dr. William Burney (1762 – December 1832), was a preparatory school or "crammer" in Gosport, Hampshire, England, whose aim was to prepare young men for the Royal Navy's entrance examinations and a naval career, though many of its students went on to Army or civilian careers.[1]


On the death of Burney, his son Henry took over running of the school, followed by Henry's brother Edward (c.1817-1888), then William's grandson the Rev. Edward Amyatt Amyatt Burney, who became Rector of Rowner, to the north-west of Gosport (1848–1920).[2] The school was sold in 1889.[2] At some time before 1891 it received patronage of Queen Victoria, Prince Albert, the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Connaught, and was renamed the Royal Academy.[2] The Rev. F. G. Johnson was Head Master from 1888 until the school closed in 1904.[2]
