School historyEdit

The school was opened to the first pupils for the autumn term in 1957 and later officially opened by the Duchess of Kent in 1958.

The first headmaster was a Mr R. Simpson. At this time the school had four (4) academic years as pupils would leave after their 14th birthday. A fifth year was added in 1961 for 'A' stream pupils to take their 'O' level GCE exams. The school was split into four (4) 'houses'; Parker, Langton, Birley and Shaw, these names were based on local prominent families. The houses formed the foundation for competition in both academic and sporting areas.
