The site is now back up and running on a new host service.

Unfortunately, several links have become broken and I'm trying to reorganise the whole thing...

See 'New Site' Below:-

A Link for Keith Yates -
'The 1471 Horwich Squadron ATC History Website'

NOTE: I tested this on 18th October 2009 and there seemed to be a missing link on the site you are redirected to.

Former Headteacher Alan Jenner died on August 8th 2003, at the age of 90. He was Head of the school from 1953 till he retired in 1972. A memorial thanksgiving service was held in the school chapel on Sunday 12th October 2003.


This site has changed over the last 15 years.... originally being just my attempt to keep the memory of a great old school alive.

Other people have begun to contribute..... Thanks to Keith Yates, Karen Yates and Dave Horsley

But it really needs more people to send us information, pictures etc.

The current HIGH School has managed to dispose of any 'artifacts' relating to the Grammar School,
which makes a bit of a mockery of their motto ' A school with a tradition'.....
but hopefully this website will help to keep the original R&BGS 'alive'.

I am currently rewriting the whole site to make it more compact and easier to use, so if anyone has any contributions, now is a good time to submit them!
