DEVONPORT LOCAL EDUCATION AUTHORITY  /  EDUCATION IN OLD DEVONPORT

SCHOOL MANAGERS

The Devonport School Board was abolished on March 31st 1903 and their schools transferred to the Devonport Local Education Authority, in other words Devonport Borough Council.  The new Education Committee consisted of twenty-seven members elected from Devonport Council and ten co-opted from elsewhere.  They appointed Mr W H Crang as their secretary and Director of Education for the Borough.
