Comprehensive schools as from the late 1960s.Paulatic wrote:I left school in 1968 they were still a Secondary Modern then. Was sometime in the 70s when things changed
I have a couple of text books with our school stamp on the inside. It says "Shevington County Secondary School".
It was built at the end of the 1950s and was never a Secondary Modern.
The term "Secondary Modern" is a hangover from the schools in those days.
Mrs Mick F professes to have been the Burscough Secondary Modern School. I've proved it to her that it was a County Secondary, but she won't accept it because it was always referred to as Burscough Secondary Modern ................ even though it wasn't.
