Fleetwood Grammar School

or more properly, The Grammar School, Fleetwood

The Grammar School in Poulton Road, Fleetwood

Opened “on October 3rd, 1921, by Sir H. F. Hibbert, Bart.”[i], it was housed in a wooden building, which was intended to be a temporary measure till more permanent premises could be constructed. This was used, however, with additional extensions and outbuildings, till the school’s closure in 1977. Its magazine was The Georgian (from 1975 re-branded Focus). Each Autumn Term there was the annual Speech Day, which included the giving of prizes and certificates, held in the Marine Hall, Fleetwood.
