During the 1950’s it seems as though displays of this kind were a regular feature of Parent’s Days and other events at Moor Allerton School judging by the school’s old photograph albums. It can’t have been much fun being at the bottom of the pyramid, though it looks as though they put the biggest boys there, and put the smallest and lightest at the top!

Health and Safety legislation would probably rule out anything like this today – notice the complete lack of safety mats to provide a soft landing!

Rehearsals are in full flow and costumes are being put together for the school’s Centenary Spectacular production on July 2nd at Stockport Plaza.

Moor Allerton regularly puts on productions at this marvellous theatre. Here. we’ve collected together some photos of the school production from 2009. That’s not so long ago, so hopefully if you are reading this, you’ll have some memories of this event. Tell us about it. What was the theme? Is that one of your children , or older brothers or sisters up there on stage?

Let us know in the comments box below.

Over the last 100 years there have been lots of changes to Moor Allerton School and its surroundings – not least to the land immediately around the school building itself. Early photos offer tantalising glimpses of greenery, indicating that there were once gardens at both the front and the rear of the building. The following photograph in particular shows how extensive those gardens once were….
