History of the School


St. Paul's Roman Catholic school, Wood Green, opened in 1884 in a newly erected iron church in Station Road. A one-storey brick schoolhouse was built behind the church in 1885  and the school's income, from pence and voluntary contributions, was supplemented by a parliamentary grant in 1887.  The accommodation, initially for 80 boys, girls, and infants, had increased to 223 places by 1898 and 339 by 1906, but had fallen to 280 in 1919.
