- Description: Primary school education in Denbighshire developed from the National and British Schools established in the first half of the 19th century by the National Society for the Education of the Poor in the Principles of the Established Church (established 1811, Anglican) and the British and Foreign School Society (established 1798, named BFSS in 1814, Non-conformist). Although the setting up of schools required local support and subscriptions, usually in response to a charity's campaign, the costs were partly borne by the government, which provided building grants from 1833 and maintenance grants from 1853. Schools were built in Denbighshire from 1844-1874. The grants for charitable provision ended in 1872, when they were replaced by School Boards; British Schools were transferred to the Boards. Oversight of the school system passed to County Councils as Local Education Authorities in 1902.

A collection is arranged in order to show context. This means that it will be catalogued to preserve its original order where possible. The collection will be arranged into sub-sections, such as series, files, items, and these will all be clearly related. Archival collections often have folder type structure if they are catalogued to this level of detail. The researcher can then see the context of an individual item, such as a letter - they can see that it forms part of a series, and the series is within a larger collection.
