CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: Troedyrhiw National Board school was built in 1862 by Merthyr Tydfil school board to educate 620 children. As a result of the 1870 Education Act, the national school was handed over to the new board in 1871 and Troedyrhiw school was extended and a new infants' school erected. The school had a senior department from a very early date. It was made into a secondary school through the merger of Quakers Yard Grammar and Technical Colleges in 1955, which were consequently moved onto the Troedyrhiw site to make way for Merthyr Tydfil College of Further Education. Troedyrhiw Secondary school was closed in July 1967 and the pupils were transferred to Afon Taf High when all secondary schools were replaced with comprehensive schools.
