History

The first private anatomy school in London, the school was established by William Hunter in 1745. Initially housed in Covent Garden and the Haymarket, Hunter commissioned a purpose-built school in 1768 on Great Windmill Street, where his collections of anatomical preparations was displayed in the museum alongside the anatomy theatre. A popular school, the students were taught anatomy on the dissected corpses of hanged criminals. The school closed in 1836, by which time multiple schools of anatomy had been established, many by the former students at Great Windmill Street.
