School Opening Notice
(Aberdare Leader, August 23rd, 1913)

The Head Master and Governors spent a considerable amount of time in the early days of the school allocating scholarships, or part scholarships, to pupils. The notice shown below is from the Aberdare Leader of August 23rd,  1913; it informs parents of the dates of the new term and details of the times of the entrance examination.

The notice for the Girls’ Intermediate School would have been the first ever placed, as the September 1913 intake marked the opening of the school. This would have been the first time for the Head Mistress, Miss Cook, to carry out this procedure.
