Administrative / Biographical History

Following the Education Act 1870, School Boards were established to provide education in areas where no such provision existed. The School Boards were elected bodies, empowered to set up and maintain schools in areas where voluntary provision was inadequate, to frame bye-laws for the compulsory attendance of children aged between 5 and 13, and for setting the school leaving age. After the Education Act 1902, the School Boards passed their responsibility for elementary education to the Local Education Authorities within Glamorgan County Council.
