Manchester High School for Girls was founded in 1874 "to provide for Manchester's daughters what has been provided without stint for Manchester's sons. "
The Manchester High School archive contains records of all kinds dating from the foundation of the school to the present day. In 2002, the Heritage Lottery Fund awarded a grant to the archive to help to conserve and promote the country's heritage in the field of girls' education. This website is one of the ways in which these aims will be achieved.
Enquiries and requests to visit the archive should be directed to:
