AdminHistoryCowley British Schools continued after 1874 as a non-denominational elementary school and was not funded by the Cowley Trust. The 1845 building was demolished in 1911 and a new school, known as Higher Grade School, built on the site. This school became Central Modern (c.1946) and eventually Central Secondary and then High School (1970s). Central High School closed in 1984.
