|Clarifying Darcy's letter

1) "...she was taken from school, and an establishment formed for her in London; and last summer she went with the lady who presided over it, to Ramsgate"
What is this "establishment"? It's obviously different from a school, and something over which a lady presides; but beyond that I have no idea.
2) "I wrote to Mr. Wickham, who left the place immediately"
Why did Darcy need to write to Wickham, instead of just telling him to his face? Or does this passage mean that Wickham ran away immediately on finding Darcy in Ramsgate, so Darcy had no recourse but to write? I suppose he could have gotten Wickham's address from Mrs. Younge before dismissing her.
