Armley Board School (later to become Armley Council School), Armley Road (Armley) (27 comments)
Black & White imageUndated Postcard view of Armley Board School in Armley Road, known to locals as the 'clock school'. It was built in 1878 and pupils were transferred here from the Armley Wesleyan School and Theaker Lane School. The school was proud of the number of pupils who won scholarships to further their education in the late 19th century and their names were painted on a large display board. After the abolition of the School Boards in 1902 Armley Board School became known, for many years, as Armley Council School.
