As a former pupil at what was then known as Eccles C of E Secondary Modern School, known amongst the pupils as Brookhouse C of E Secondary Modern School, and is now known as Canon Williamson High School, with very fond memories of my time there (1966, 1967, 1968, 1969) I went looking for a home page. I couldn't find one. So, I've started an Unofficial Homepage website for the school.
Please, if you have any Brookhouse C of E memorabilia you'd like to share email me, we can organise scans of photos and you can share them with other ex-pupils as we find them. As time allows I'll update this website with whatever we can get, and re-organise it to suit.
Sign on as an ex-pupil in the guestbook (my entry is the first one) and maybe we can meet up again on here with some old friends. Not much to go on here at present except what I can dredge from memory, as I have no records or photos of my own, apart from a few of the 1968 school trip. Hopefully with your help we'll expand it and have a decent page.
Did you go on a school trip to Chester ..? If you did, you might recognise this still from a cine film made on the trip; Mark Craven sent me the picture, and soon we hope to be able to organise a link to the film here on the internet .. stay tuned .. here's the still photo .. thanks Mark ..
The photos are coming in .. this one from Sue Brooker of some of the girls of the 1967/1969 classes at a reunion; Lyn Tarbrook, Judith Johnson, Sue Brooker and Sue Mort ... here's the photo .. thanks Sue ..
