St. Lawrence's National School was opened in 1872
in a new building in Lawrence Lane behind St. Lawrence's Church. The
cost was £2,300; National Society and government grants were received.
There were three schoolrooms and two classrooms, with places for 428
boys, girls and infants. Fees were from 2d to 6d. An
annual government grant was first received in 1873. The average
attendance was then 235. In 1878 accommodation for 250 more children was
added. In 1910 the average attendance was 249 in the boys', 200 in the
girls', and 230 in the infants' departments. There were only two
departments in 1932: junior mixed and infants. In 1936 the average
attendance was 580. The schools were continued as voluntary aided
primary schools after 1950; 230 were enrolled in the junior and 120 in
the infants' schools in 1956.
