George Board, Former Head

Updated: Sep 3, 2019

Mr George Board was the School's second longest serving Head from 1884-1906. One of the most fascinating items in the School's Archives is his "log book", a sort of diary where he records the minutest details of every day for seven years, From this, we can see what a remarkable man he was. He describes how involved he was with every aspect of the school and the hardships of Victorian life. During his Headship the school buildings doubles in size. By the time he retired in 1906, he had overseen the education and indeed the daily lives in the Boarding House of over 800 Foundationers, as well as those of Boarders and many Day Pupils. He is buried in the graveyard of All Saints Church in Cheadle Hulme.
