Scope and Content

After 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 levy rates and to set up and maintain schools in areas where voluntary provision was inadequate. Following the Education Act 1902, the School Boards passed their responsibility for elementary education on to the Local Education Authority, Denbighshire County Council. The Education Committee received the records of the Boards when they were transferred.
