Brownley Green Secondary School(1937-2001)
(from 1967.... South Wythenshawe High School(upper) )
(from 1981.....South Manchester High School)
 
Research ongoing for both schools.

note: ..Research for the two schools is very hard going (i should have known better trying to do a site on schools that no longer exist) all i've found is faded newpaper clippings, its early days yet though, but if anyone has any ideas where i can find archive material please let me know.
 
I'm sure ex teachers must have a mountain of material( hint hint)... anyway...contact the site with anything you have.
 
Please note..i have tried all the librarys.

Would you like to contribute material for this site?,
