TitleWhitchurch School Board Records
BackgroundFollowing 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, responsibility for elementary education passed to the Local Education Authorities within county councils and county boroughs.
