Notes

Spring term entry: The pupils John Mansel Evans, Daniel Thomas Lewis and Edward John Williams enrolled in January 1914. All the others enrolled in the Autumn term.

Age on Entry: Pupils entering Form 1 were generally aged 12+ in the early days of the school. There was no Form 2 and the four-year course to School Certificate concluded in Form 5.
In 1914, the school recruited pupils to higher Forms, as well as to Form 1, so for example, David Ellis Jones entered directly into Form 5.
The order of pupils in the table is the order in which they were enrolled.
