Administrative / Biographical History

The original junior school was swept away and three pupils drowned in the terrible Dolgarrog Dam Disaster of 1925. Following the tragedy, school was held in Bankfield House [? Village hall]. In 1934 the new school was opened with 110 names on the books. In 1937 a new Central School was opened for 160 children: these included the children of the Infants and Junior Section of Dolgarrog Council School (7-11 years), together with a Senior section (11+) for children from Trefriw, Dolgarrog, Talybont, Rowen and Maenan Council Schools, and Conwy Central School.
