Apart from some early private schools the two main primary schools were the Council
School in Heol-y-Dwr and the National or Church School in Brecon Road. The Parish
Hall in Lion Street was used for the infant class for the Church School in Brecon
A new combined Primary school was built in Oxford Road in 1972. The Heol-y-Dwr building
was demolished in 1970 and replaced by a new Police Station. The old National School
in Brecon Road is now the Masonic Lodge.
