School Records

We hold a large collection of school records for the Manchester area. Surviving admission registers c.1870-c.1916 for Manchester schools are now available on findmypast. Free access is available at any Manchester City Council library.

An on-line guide to the records we hold for schools and the Manchester School Board  is also available.

The Greater Manchester County Record Office at Manchester Central Library holds a collection of approximately 4,500 negatives taken by a company called Panora, which specialised in panoramic photographs of school groups. Photographs were taken of schools throughout the country from 1968 to 1985.
