Under the Education Act of 1902 the responsibilities of (directly elected) school boards were transferred (in 1903) to local councils 4.
Whilst basic education was free, the County High Schools - one for girls and one for boys - and the Technical Institute charged fees. They were taught some subjects at the Technical Institute (photo right) girls with boys, where they could not study electricity or ‘manual instruction’, and botany, needlework and cookery were taught only to girls.
