I received sad news yesterday that Michael (Mick) Harvey who was in the 1961 intake has sadly passed away on the 10th April 2017. Mick was a popular lad at school and a member of the rugby team. Other ex-pupils might know him from the pet shop in Pemberton that he and his wife Christine ran for many years.
I am currently scanning the 1962 school magazine which is quite a big one so may take a while.
There are still a lot of schol magazines to be scanned but it is a slow job. Is anyone interested in scanning a few magazines and then sending me the files to put online. It would help to get new content on the website quicker. If you're interested email me at email@example.com .

On 9th September Diamond Jubilee Celebrations were held at Winstanley College marking 60 yrs since the building officially opened when Up Holland grammar school moved from it's old premises in Ox House road to the new building in Winstanley road.
During the afternoon school tours were run enabling old pupils to reminisce seeing parts of the college still resembling the way it was, and to marvel at the new buildings and facilities available to the students now attending Winstanley College. In the evening a great 1950's themed show was performed by the present day students.
I would like to thank the college Princial, Louise Tipping, and all her staff for being so friendly and making us welcome and putting up with over 90 old pupils wandering round the college whilst classes were going on. I would especially like to thank the Vice Principal, Mel Chadwick, and Laura Barker for all their help during the time we worked with them organizing the Diamond Jubilee.
Please go to the Diamond Jubilee page to see photos from the afternoon school tours and the evening show.
