The Naval Education Service was a branch of the British Royal Navy which both provided education for naval personnel and ran schools for children of Royal Navy personnel.

History[edit]

It was originally known as the Department of Naval Education[1] of the Admiralty from 1914 until 1951 when it was renamed the Naval Education Service. It was abolished in 1978, its functions have now been taken over by Service Children's Education. This branch of the Royal Navy was under the control of the Office of the Second Sea Lord.[2]
