I am currently working on a book about Leigh Girls’ Grammar School. I have just started a chapter about the teachers. Alphabetically, I am only up to Mrs Freeman and she is already number 107! A lot of the same members of staff get mentions in old girls’ memories making it seem like they were a small and steady workforce but actually a lot of teachers came and went – and the main reason for going so far appears to be ‘left to get married’. Anyone like to guess the overall total of staff who worked there from 1921-1976?
If you have any memories of teachers then now would be the time to send them to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to support me in writing the book (which is currently just a labour of love) then you can donate either via Paypal (email@example.com) or via ko-fi.com/juleswriter
