Earlier schools called Sale High School[edit]

In the early part of the 20th century, a pair of private schools in Sale used the High School name: Sale High School for Girls, at Oaklands on Marsland Road, and the Sale, Brooklands & Ashton-upon-Mersey High School for Boys on Poplar Grove,[1] which became a feeder school for Manchester Grammar School (in 1908), shortened its name to Sale High School for Boys, and in 1936 moved to Woodbourne Road.[2] Alumni of the boys' school include playwright Robert Bolt[3] and novelist John Malcolm Andrews.[4]
