100 Years of Girls' Education

The official opening in February 1909 marked the start of eight flourishing decades for the school but, sadly, in 1990 it was forced to close. The site lay empty and neglected for two years until the King’s School Foundation bought it for its new Girls’ Division, breathing fresh life into the buildings and grounds. Over one hundred years ago, Macclesfield High School for Girls moved to brand new premises on Fence Avenue.
