History[change | change source]

The school was started and the buildings constructed in 1910 for Samuel Clegg who was recognised as a leading teacher. He ran the school until his death in 1930. His daughter married a teacher there and their children were Richard and David Attenborough.[1]

In 2006, a new set of buildings were constructed for the school. The new school buildings were opened by Gordon Brown in November 2006.[2]
