An eighteen month project to research the history of the grammar schools in Leigh and to collect, explore, preserve and share memories and artefacts supported by 3 paid heritage interns.

Led and administered by Healthy Arts with support from Wigan & Leigh Archives & Local Studies and Bedford High School. The project culminated in a Celebration Day which included an interactive exhibition of videos and artefacts, a debate about grammar school education and live performances by professional actors and schoolchildren recreating school experiences.
