HORSLEY'S GREEN SCHOOL

STOKENCHURCH, NEAR HIGH WYCOMBE. BUCKINGHAMSHIRE


DID YOU ATTEND HORSLEY'S GREEN SCHOOL ??

During the second world war the government formed the National camp school corporation to build and manage a number of "Camp Schools" built in the style of a small army camp. These schools were used to evacuate children at risk from the blitz and run by the local councils from whose area the evacuees came. After the war ended there was no longer a need for these schools and they were put on the for sale market and offered to local education committees. Some were pruchased by the larger counties and were run as boarding schools.Lancashire purchased Stokenchurch Camp School, latter renamed Horsley's Green School and so here starts our story.

Lancashire Education Committee ran Horsley's Green School a boarding school for boys near High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire from 1947 until the early 1970's. In order to attend the school boy's had to attend a secondary school run by Lancashire Education Committee this meant that boy's from the County Boroughs such as Blackburn, Wigan and Warrington and the Cities of Liverpool and Manchester were excluded from attending. But this did mean that there were boy's from the Furness district in the north to Ashton on Mersey in the east and Widnes in the South west.

We have formed an Old Boy's (and staff) Association. If you are an old boy or former member of staff please get in contact with us. We are hoping to establish a date base of names and addresses and a start has been made in establishing a collection of photographs, magazines and other memorabilia - what have you got ?  Our sponsor has offered to copy photographs and publications so that we can return them to the owner by return of post .

We have produced a number of newsletters and some recollections that have been supplied by those who have made contact as a result of hearing our broadcast on BBC GMR (Radio Manchester) or seeing our letters in local newspapers, these are sent out by e-mail and post (e-mail is the preferred method as this can be done without cost but the paper versions require photocopying and envelopes and postage have to be paid for.) Do you know anyone who has been a pupil or member of the staff ? if you do please put us in contact.  Are you in this photo received from an unknown source can you give any information on it ?  As you can see it is a mixed sex group. The school hosted school holidays during the summer and Easter when the Lancashire boys were at home, the holiday visitors came from places other tham Lancashire. Their local school rented the centre for weekly periods. This photograph could have been one of these groups.
