The book tells the story of the Manor Street School chronologically. It also has themes of national and local social context, the educational and health issues of the time and tracks the changes in the building. It is brought to life by the various human stories of children and parents associated with the school. 


“It is a research based book but with the museum’s help, we have also brought to light some lovely photographs to illustrate the story.” Anne Watkinson, Author
