Long Description:
St Mary's church Hall, Conwy. A former school built in 1887.

"In 1887 the boys in the National School moved to a new school building on Rose Hill Street funded by Albert Wood (next to St John's Church). Also in 1887 the infants which was housed in Plas Mawr, High Street joined the girls in the school at 19 Rose Hill Street. 19 Rose Hill Street is often referred to by the locals as “The Girls School".

In the Sutton's Directory for 1889 the teachers at the National School are named again as William Allan and Mrs. A. Allan and also in the 1891 census. In 1901 Mr. & Mrs. Allan seem to have been joined by their daughter Irene B. Allan.

In 1902 an application was made to build an extra classroom at the boys school,Conwy National Schools, Rose hill. The work was carried out later that year.

In 1927 the National Girls and infants school moved to Bodlondeb School. Between 1927 – 1978 the building they had been in, which is now Grade II listed, was left empty. At the same time, the Junior department became mixed although it continued to be referred to as 'The Boys School'. In 1928 an application was made to build offices (sanitary arrangements) at Conway NP School, Rose hill. It was approved. The 1929 Conway Street Directory listed the school as 'Boys and Girls Mixed National School. The 1932 – 36 Sinclair Bennett's Directory listed it as boys and girls. The 1939 Kelly's Directory included it as 'Conway Non-Provided (junior mixed) school.

In 1961 The National Junior School in Rose Hill Street, closed and the pupils were moved to Cadnant Junior School on St. Agnes Road."
