Aberdare Boys’ Grammar School
Information about the contributory schools
schools of the 1906 intake of pupils to the school
from School Records
The table below gives information about the numbers of pupils admitted to the school during the academic year 1906–1907. The number of pupils by previous school is presented. By far the greatest number came from the Aberdare Higher Elementary in the Gadlys, Aberdare, although the pupils would have attended one of the other elementary schools before transferring there. Most of the new entrants were aged 12 to 13, with a variation from 11 years to 16 years, but the older entrants would almost certainly have not started in Form I. The new pupils are shown as coming from Standards IV to VII at their previous school, but with no standard specified for the 16-year-old pupils.
|Contributory School||Number of pupils|
|Aberdare Higher Elementary||25|
|Town National, Aberdare||13|
|Institute Council, Mountain Ash||3|
|Cowbridge Grammar School||1|
|Grange Road School, Bradford||1|
|Merthyr Intermediate School||1|
|Miss Richards, Maendy Place||1|
|No school given||1|
Of these pupils 110 started on the first day of term, September 18th, 1906 and a further 4 later in the autumn term. Two pupils do not have their starting date recorded.We wish to thank Ian Machin, Headteacher and Judith Griffiths, Deputy Headteacher, Aberdare High School
