Historical Background

Originally founded in 1533 to be “a grammar school for the education of the poor of Bowdon” on a site in Richmond Road, the school was rebuilt in 1670 with further additions in 1806. It was replaced in November 1969 by a new-built school on a green-field site in Grange Road, financed jointly by the Local Education Authority and St Mary’s Parish Church, Bowdon. In September 2015 our brand new, purpose built school opened; catering for a graduated expansion due to the popularity of the school.  

Our new building and grounds incorporate everything that you would expect to find in order to deliver a 21st Century curriculum, including:

  • a large hall and an arts hall - opening to become a large assembly, worship or performing space
