STUART ROAD ELEMENTARY COUNCIL SCHOOL

Stuart Road Elementary Council School was located in Palmerston Street, Stoke, Plymouth.

Following the transfer of education from the Devonport School Board to the Local Education Authority on June 1st 1903, Stuart Road Board School became the Stuart Road Elementary Council School.

When the Borough of Devonport was amalgamated with Plymouth and Stonehouse in 1914, the School was, of course, transferred to the new Plymouth Local Education Authority.

The building was badly damaged during the Second World War and the pupils were moved elsewhere for some five months while it was repaired.

After the Education Act 1944, the building housed the Stuart Road Primary School on the ground and first floors with the Stuart Road Secondary Modern School for Girls on the top floor.
