Archive's Document of the Month – September 2018

Document of the Month: School Building Plans, Llangoed, 1936

Reference Number: WA/13/57

September is traditionally the start of the School Term, and as hundreds of children all over Anglesey return to school, we take a look back at how schools used to be.

This month’s document is a plan of Llangoed School. Drawn to a scale of twenty feet to one inch, by the County Council’s Architects Department, Shire Hall Llangefni, in November 1936. The plan shows a proposed change to the boundary walls. This plan is a fascinating insight into school life in the first half of the 20th century. Notice how there are separate playgrounds for boys and girls, however it looks like all infants be they girls or boys were allowed to play together, on the girl’s side. The school building is symmetrical from east to west – suggesting that there were also separate entrances for boys and girls.

This was also a time when the headmaster’s job came with a house, and he lived on site – or very near the school. Here we can see that school house is located at the end of the playground and included a substantial garden.

The earliest documentation for this school, within the Anglesey Education Records is dated 1896, and is a log book for the years 1896 – 1920. Suggesting that the School opened its doors for the first time in 1896.
