HOLY TRINITY CHURCH OF ENGLAND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

By the Education Act 1902 the management of Holy Trinity National School was transferred from the Church of England to the new Plymouth Local Education Authority, which was actually the Education Committee of Plymouth Borough Council.  The transfer took place on Wednesday April 1st 1903.  Holy Trinity Church of England Elementary School had accommodation for 130 boys and 130 girls.

In 1914 Mr W J Taylor was the master of the boys' school ands Miss J Bradford the mistress of the girls' school.  The average attendance at that time was 102 boys and 118 girls.

The Education Act 1918 raised the school-leaving age to the fourteenth birthday.

Holy Trinity Church of England Elementary School was closed by 1937.
