We do not know a great deal about the history of the Aberdale Boys Grammar School. I'm nor sure what the rules were at first, but became a selective school which required good scores on the 11-plus examination to enter. This was the same systen as in Britain.It was founded in 1896. It seems to have been a very small school when initially founded. The uniform appears to have been at first rather flexible, but by the 1950s was quite formal. While we do not have detailed information about the school history, the school does have a wonderful internet website with photographs, copies of the magazine, and all kinds of other information of historical interest.
