The Schools Class or more correctly the Southern Region V Class Locomotive was designed by Richard Maunsell for the Southern Railway and built by their Eastleigh works between 1930 and 1935. The Schools class was the last class of British locomotive to be built with the 4-4-0 wheel arrangement, they were built primarily for express passenger duties. The class was considered to be very successful and could operate effectively over most SR lines.

They continued in service until 1962 with three surviving into preservation.
