Stalybridge Saturday: Waterloo Road School


This week's visit to neighbouring Stalybridge features the old Waterloo Road School. No - not the one on the television series, but the old Waterloo Road Girls' Secondary School, which was eventually replaced by Copley High School. The boys' school is still up the road at West Hill, but Copley is a mixed school, so they must have found some extra boys from somewhere along the way!

The school was an attractive building of Accrington Brick with stone banding. It must have started life as a mixed school because, although the word "Girls" appears in raised lettering over the doorway visible on the left side of the building, the doorway on the far side has the word "Boys" above it.
