CONTEXT

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 levy rates and 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 on to the Local Education Authorities within county councils and county boroughs including Cardiff County Borough. Cardiff School Board was replaced by Cardiff Education Committee in 1903.
