School History Accounts

Original 1992 Edition

This was produced in 1992 as part of the School's Tercentenary Celebrations. The text was composed on an Amstrad PCW computer and typeset by Mitchell and Wright, Southport. The design and artwork were produced by design students of Southport College under the guidance of Brian Nicholson, husband of School Secretary Lesley Nicholson. A print run of 200 copies was quickly sold. One copy was placed in the time box secreted in the room the upper classroom to be opened in 2092. I suppose any copies still in existence will be collectors items.
