History

Grammar technical schools

It was known as the Goyt Bank High School for Girls from 1960, being built by Stockport Corporation, originally to be known as the Goyt Bank Technical High School for Girls. It was a two-form entry grammar technical school, with girls moving there for the former Greek Street High School for Girls in Stockport. Other similar schools at the time were the Stockport High School for Girls and the Fylde Lodge High School for Girls on Priestnall Road in Heaton Moor. Later it became a three-form entry school with 550 girls.

Stockport Technical High School (a boys' technical school) moved from Pendlebury Hall on Lancashire Hill to The Fairway at Offerton in 1964. It had 400 boys.

Both of these schools had sixth forms.
