Description For school records, see S220/2 and SM220/2. For references to individual schools and issues affecting them, including appointment of managers or governors, researchers are also advised to consult the minutes of the Education Committee [series reference GCC/EDU/1/1], the Elementary Schools Sub-Committee, later the Primary Education Sub-Committee [series reference GCC/EDU/2/1/1] for references to primary schools prior to 1960, and the Schools Sub-Committee [series reference GCC/EDU/2/1/3] for references to all schools from 1960 onwards

Admin History Plump Hill Board School opened in 1878. It became a council school after the Education Act 1902, and a county primary school after the Education Act 1944. The school closed in July 1984 and the buildings were then used as the Plump Hill Annexe to the Royal Forest of Dean Centre for Environmental Studies at the Wilderness; this closed in 2011, and the buildings were reopened as the Oakraven Field Centre in 2014
