Two completed application forms

The two application for admission forms below are both dated February 1910. For some unknown reason both are completed in the handwriting of the Headmaster, W. Charlton Cox, although that for Harriet Martin would appear to be signed by her father. Both pupils were admitted half way through the academic year 1909-10, but David Ll. James left after just eight weeks at the school.

Harriet Martin’s previous school was the Higher Standard School; this is the school in the Gadlys, known later as The Gadlys Central School and is currently the Lower School of the Aberdare Girls Comprehensive. The original name of the school can still be seen on the central tower.
