Assistant School Master
« on: Sunday 19 February 06 13:17 GMT (UK) »
On the first Monday in February 1879 my grand father became Assistant School Master in Welshpool Boys School. He had left Welshpool Boys School by 1884 and was School Master in Porth y Waen School, situated between Welshpool and Oswestry.Can anyone tell me anything about Welshpool Boys School or when he may have left that school and similar for Porth y Waen School or any thing of interest Many thanks.

I googled Porth y Waen school and see that it's now a private house, used as a base for a driving school!!!

Driving School Name: Award School of Motoring
Telephone: 01691 831427
Address: Old School House, Porth-y-Waen, Oswestry, SY10 8LS

I know it's a long shot but just maybe the owner might know a bit of history about their house :D


The Powys Archives in Llandrindod Wells would be your best bet for schools information:

Powys County Archives Office, County Hall, Llandrindod Wells, Powys, Great Britain LD1 5LG (tel: 01597 826088) or you could always email them
archives at powys.gov.uk (replace at with @ and no spaces).

If you google Welshpool Boys Grammar School you should find quite a bit of information.
