Welcome to the Eccles Grammar School Web Site. The School closed in 1973 but its memory lingers on in these pages. Following a successful Reunion in 1998 I decided to build this site to provide a focal point for all the Old Essians to keep in contact. I hope that through these pages I am able to bring back some happy memories to its former pupils. The Site is in a state of perpetual development and feedback will be most welcome. Please e-mail me (John Trace 1959-66) by clicking on the Badge below.

There is also a Mailing List for ex-pupils to exchange information. Click on the icon below This is a list designed for former pupils to communicate with each other. It is not just for messages from me. It is a closed list and I have to approve any new members. (This is usually just a formality.) Please feel free to use it.

There is a brief history of the school taken from the Eccles and Patricroft Journal in 1973.
