A look back at Longton High School

Here is a collection of photo’s taken around Longton High School in 2010.

They were taken on 24th April 2010 at an open day just before the site was closed.

Take a look back at the iconic building, the swimming baths, and the playing fields, and not to mention the 2 playgrounds ! Plus various other buildings on the site.

Longton High School was first based in Longton and later moved to Meir. The school was founded in 1760 in Longton, and in 1963, the school moved from Sandon Road in Meir to the site in Box Lane.

    One of the 22 girls who came into the 6th Form in 1963. I came from Willfield School.

    I was in the last all boys year from Sandon Rd site, 1963 as second year. Stayed to 1970 in 3rd yr 6th. An interesting 7 years which moulded me!

    My Mother was devastated when she had to leave LHS in 1938 when it became all-boys and she had to go to Thistley Hough. She was delighted when I went to LHS in 1966. She later went to work at LHS and was on the governors for many years. She was Hazel Mullineux (nee Baggalley) and was a member of the Old Longtonians.

    Hi Ann. I remember your Mother so fondly. She was a kind and lovely lady who on so many occasions started a conversation with me or one my friends. I do think of her from time to time for her invaluable advice and gentle manner.
