Administrative history

Founded probably 1892. In 1892 Princess Road Junior School closed. This school may have accommodated infants. A separate infant school certainly existed by 1897 and it seems probable that it occupied the junior school premises from September 1892. In 1922 the school was renamed the North Park School. This school closed on 25 July 1930 and reopened in new premises as Elmwood Infant School on 8 September 1930.
