Originally St George's National School. Built in 1846 (thus pre-dating development of resort of Llandudno, and enlarged in 1854. Shown in a lithograph by N and N Hanhart of I856. In 1846, the Commissioners of the Inquiry into the State of Education in Wales reported that the only master (at £21 per annum) was a former farmer with a poor knowledge of English; fees were then 1d weekly. Some early C20 additions to rear.
