1886 - ?

In 1886 the West Bromwich Institute on Lodge Street was opened. Art classes were organised into a school of art, which, following the Technical Instruction Act of 1891, became the responsibility of the town council, the school becoming the Municipal School of Art. The art school was transferred from the Institute in 1902
to the new Ryland Memorial School of Art and Crafts, built on an adjoining site. In 1969 the Ryland Memorial School merged with three other colleges to form the West Bromwich College of Commerce and Technology. The building found use as a school and then as the West Bromwich campus of Sandwell College. It is now home to the British Muslim School.
