My father attended the Abertillery British School, junior and senior sections. This is back during the Great War, then into the 1920s.
I would like to know more about this school, not least when it was founded. Was it particularly connected with the non-conformist movement?
A letter from Margaret in Australia on the Queen Street thread has brought this to my mind. She attended the British School; but wasn't it at first a boys' school? And when did it close?
Are there any older Abertillerians who know more?
Seen the information you require somewhere, try googling gwent local history journal there's a couple of articles on Abertillery in issue 41.
It states on facebook this morning that former headmaster Ray Edmunds has passed on. _________________ I use to be a schizophrenic but we're OK now.
