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!

One passion which has run through the decades at Moor Allerton is that of football. The teams and squads best documented in the school archive are those of the middle decades, between the 60s and the 80s, and here you can see a gallery of teams from this period.

Only a few have records of the actual pupils. So if you are on those line-ups, or you recognise any of the faces, then please leave a reply and let us know.

Likewise, if you have any footballing photos from this or any other period of the school’s history, please let us have them so we can add to the gallery.

Some more pages from the photo album showing some of the staff and pupils from the late 1930s.
