Description:The Honours List at the former Athenaeum building, covering the years 1914 to 1925. Fenton School of Art was set up in 1889 by William Meath Baker in the old Fenton Athenaeum, which had been opened in 1853 and stood on the corner of Church Street (now Christchurch Street) and High Street East (now City Road). It was later occupied by the District and then the National Westminster Bank, before being demolished in 1977. A new Nat West Bank building was erected on the site.

Among the names on this list of honoured students is that of R.J. Mitchell, aeronautical engineer and designer of the Spitfire. Reginald Mitchell (1895-1937) was born in Butt Lane and was an apprentice of Kerr Stuart Locomotive Engineers Limited, a firm in Fenton, Stoke-on-Trent.
