Member of Staff[edit]

In response to an invitation from User:ClemRutter I am proposing to help update this article. My name is Simon Duffy and I am a regular user of Wikipedia. I have been a teacher at the Manchester Grammar School in Manchester since September 1985 and am currently the Head of the Computing Department.[1] I make all edits in a personal capacity not as an agent of MGS, and if any Wikipedian feels that an edit I have made is controversial they should revert it and flag it up on the talkpage which other Wikipedians are watching. One of my main aims is to improve the contents and quality of the article about Manchester Grammar School using Norwich School (independent school) as a model. I was a biology teacher at Norwich School between 1981 and 1985.Serendipityrules (talk) 08:44, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

User:Serendipityrules, I suggest you start with a bibliography section. Here's a couple of books to get you going: [1] and [2]. Good luck! Oncenawhile (talk) 21:32, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

Name?[edit]

The formal name of the school is "The Manchester Grammar School" so shouldn't the article be moved to that name (over the existing redirect)? And before anyone cites WP:COMMONNAME there are a bunch of "The" schools whose article titles use the definite article: The King's School, Canterbury, The Southport School, The Gap State High School, The Nelson Thomlinson School etc...--ukexpat (talk) 12:55, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
