HISTORY OF COLLEGIATE HIGH SCHOOL

In the beginning...1900s to 1950s

The Education Act of 1902 made local authorities responsible for providing secondary education for all, and so plans were put in place to provide an educational establishment in Blackpool that could deliver this. In 1906 the Blackpool Secondary School opened on Raikes Parade, with the school playing fields on St Walburgas Road; this rather impressive building would later become, and still is home to, the Salvation Army. The first headteacher was Mr Joseph Turrell, and while this school had been build for all, girls and boys were taught separately.

Blackpool Grammar School

September 1925 saw the girls move to the Blackpool Girls' Secondary School at the junction of Beech Avenue and Forest Gate, which was officially opened by Lady Stanley on the 23rd of October. From 1933 it was known as the Blackpool Collegiate School for Girls. The name Collegiate had been adopted from the North London Collegiate School, a pioneer in the education of girls, with the hope that it would be a fitting name and would inspire the young ladies of Blackpool.

The building later became part of Tyldesley High School, but was eventually closed and demolished in 1987. The land was then sold off for housing development and would see a new Blackpool Fire Station being built on what was the tennis courts and playing field.

1933 was also the year that the boys school at Raikes Parade changed its name to Blackpool Grammar School for Boys, with the motto "Meliora Sequamur". Places at both schools were allocated on the result of a Special Place Examination (successful candidates paid for by the local authority) and an easier Fee Payers' Examination. Over two thirds of the students came in on the Special Place scheme. Less academic students attended Senior Schools.

The Education Act of 1944 divided secondary education into three: Grammar, Technical, and Modern. Fee paying was abolished and students were selected using the 11+ examination, with the most academical attending Grammar Schools.

A move to Blackpool Old Road...1960s

Unable to expand the premises any further at Raikes Parade, a brand new, purpose built school was erected here on Blackpool Old Road. The all-boys Blackpool Grammar School opened with a very formal ceremony in May 1962.

The opening ceremony was captured on film and can be viewed here.

During the 1960s the Ministry of Education decided that local education authorities needed to plan for comprehensive education which would abolish the selection of students at 11 (the 11+ examination) and cater for all abilities in one school, and so plans were put in place to reunite the girls and boys schools.

Two schools merge to become one...1970s and 1980s

Blackpool Grammar School for Boys closed in July 1971. Pupils aged 11 to 16 of Blackpool Collegiate School for Girls merged with the boys of Blackpool Grammar and became Blackpool Collegiate Grammar School. The first headteacher was Miss Mary Roberts who moved with the pupils from the girls school, along with the Foundation and Opening stones which were mounted outside the entrance in July 1987, and are still there today.

1971 also saw the opening of the Blackpool Collegiate Sixth Form Centre further down Blackpool Old Road, for boys and girls from age 16 upwards.

In 1974 the word 'Grammar' was dropped from the school name to become Blackpool Collegiate High School, when comprehensive education was introduced to the UK and the 11+ examination abolished, but the school did retain the motto of "Meliora Sequamur", Latin for "Let us strive for better things".

The Sixth Form of Collegiate separated from the main school in 1988 and became the Blackpool Sixth Form College.

Sports specialism...1990s to 2000

In 1999 the school entered into a public, private partnership (PPP) with sports company, Uforia Ltd, who provided a new sports arena. The eight all weather pitches opened on the 30th of August, on land situated to the rear of the school. The centre can host short hockey, Kwik cricket and five-a-side football on eight floodlit Astroturf pitches, and netball, basketball and tennis on four all-weather courts. Two years later a new sports hall was opened by the Mayor of Blackpool, and Steve McMahon, the then manager of Blackpool Football Club.

It was also during the early 1990s that the school expanded its footprint by adding buildings to the north side of the site to create technology and design workshops, IT suites, two new art studios, food technology rooms, and a dedicated music department.

Looking back...and forward!

Collegiate High School now sits at the dawn of a new era as the merger with Bispham High School goes ahead. These two proud schools will carry forward the traditions of the past into a purpose built school ready to teach, inspire, and empower future generations of Blackpool students.

The Memorial Room

Memorial room

Most of our students here at Collegiate High School are aware of the very special room we have on the first floor - the Memorial Room. But have they ever thought about why it is there and what it represents? To answer those questions we need to go back almost one hundred years.

When Blackpool Grammar School for Boys was originally sited on Raikes Parade during the 1920's, a room was built as a memorial to former students who were killed during, or as a result of, World War 1.

When the Grammar School moved to the new building here on Blackpool Old Road in 1962, they brought the Memorial Room with them. It was carefully dismantled and reassembled in its present position. When Collegiate Grammar School for Girls moved here they brought various items of memorabilia with them to be stored and displayed in this very special room.

sandwiches

The room also contains many artefacts relating to the heritage of Blackpool. These include rolls of honour from both of the original schools and the Old Boys, Old Girls and Old Student organisations. The walls contain portraits and photographs of some of the early headteachers and more recently senior prefects and headteachers of Collegiate. There are also albums containing many old photographs and even a punishment book recording the misdemeanours of former students!

At the far end of the room is a beautiful stained glass window depicting Sir Galahad, one of the knights of King Arthur's Round Table. The window was given to the Grammar School in memory of Sam Rayner and other former students who died as a result of World War 1. Sam's brother Alan Rayner died in 1928 due to injuries he received during the war and he is also remembered with an inscription on the wall to left hand side of the room.

Memorial window Superintendent Richardson

Close to this inscription there is a plaque in memory of Superintendent Gerald Richardson, who was tragically killed whilst arresting an armed robber in Blackpool on Monday 23 August 1971. He is the highest ranking British Police Officer to have been killed whilst on duty and was posthumously awarded the George Cross in November 1972. Superintendent Richardson attended Blackpool Grammar School for Boys from 1944-1949 and the plaque in his memory was unveiled by the Mayor of Blackpool in the Memorial Room on 24 September 2003. The ceremony was attended by his widow, Trustees and Governors of the school, the press and many former students as well as a number of police officers.

Our Memorial Room represents a large part of the heritage of Blackpool. We have a vital role in preserving this heritage as we have the responsibility of looking after this room and all it contains. Whatever happens to our buildings in the future, we must ensure that we do not lose such an important and unique piece of local history and national interest.

Achievement Window
The Achievement Window

This beautifully decorated stained glass window was presented to the school and students of Collegiate in memory of Loren Stoker, head girl in 1993, who sadly passed away suddenly just prior to sitting her final exams. From left to right the four windows represent the four seasons of spring, summer, autumn, and winter, and was designed with the help of teaching staff who had been close to Loren during her time here at Collegiate.

 

Don't Drop Litter
Don't Drop Litter: Year 9 Pop Art

This art piece was the culmination of a year long project created by many Collegiate students under the guidance of Mr Iddon. Inspired by a rise in the amount of litter, Mr Iddon encouraged students to pick up discarded wrappers, photograph or scan them and manipulate them using software, or simply to draw and paint them. The results were then pieced together to create this installation.

Students studied the original Pop Art movement and its artists, such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, and learnt about advertising, packaging and consumerism, not only fueling an impressive piece of art, but also teaching students about the negative effect littering can have on the community.

 

Clay Art
Cleopatra Art Installation

This exciting three-dimensional studies project was undertaken by pupils, students and staff of both the Collegiate High School and Blackpool and The Fylde College back in 1996. It was based on the name of the then new Collegiate building, Cleopatra, reflecting elements of both Egyptian and modern life. Its themes are taken from Egyptian symbols and hieroglyphic forms and are reflected and echoed by modern equivalents in straight forward language, graphic symbols and signs and also, occasionally, in the guise of a visual pun or modern simile. For instance, the inner frame of monochromatic tiles contains some well-known Egyptian images: the eye of Horus, the Ankh, symbol of life, and the baboon, usually associated with knowledge.

Anubis, the judge of the underworld, and other images are also there. But we also see a modern ship as well as an ancient galley, a motor car and a chariot, Leonardo's concept of human proportion as well as a telephone, television and other familiar images. More covertly, perhaps, Cleopatra's name appears in hieroglyphic form (actually phonetically reading Kleopadra) and an anode and diode sign are somewhere to be found. The date is also there in ancient Egyptian form: a stylised lotus, for one thousand; nine coils of rope, each coil representing one hundred. There are nine ox-yokes, which stand for ninety and six rods which are six. Thus we have one thousand nine hundred and ninety six. The sun and moon, a scribe and scythe, an electric light bulb and a helicopter are there as is yin and yang and the tripartite symbol of Christianity.

The large outer frame contains thirty cartouches. The cartouche was used by the Egyptians to enclose the name of a God, Pharaoh or Queen. We have used it to enclose the personal designs of pupils, students and staff. Some sixteen cartouches were designed and made by Collegiate pupils and were inspired by personal research into aspects of ancient Egypt. We see a cat and some beetles, Cleopatra's date as well as our own; hunters, ducks, gods and mysterious faces, all beautifully modelled in clay and glazes. The remaining fourteen contain some Egyptian symbols as well as others inspired by modern concepts. We see a dung beetle pushing the sun into the morning sky and pieces of a motorbike engine strangely similar. Einstein's E=MC2 is there in covert form, a cat meows (meow is the Egyptian word for cat), and various other Egyptian, modern and mixed imagery is represented. The central panel was modelled, cast and moulded by college staff and depicts Cleopatra meeting a spaceman (an ancient and modern icon), our own hieratic visual summation of the whole piece and what it represents: young people meeting their destiny through learning.

 

WW2 Memorial
World War II Memorial

There is a memorial outside the main hall and dining hall, dedicated to the former students of Blackpool Grammar who died in or as a result of World War Two. This memorial was orginally at the Raikes Parade site, but was relocated along with the Memorial Room. Being in a main thoroughfare within the school it acts as a constant reminder to students of all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we may enjoy our freedom.

 

Memorial Tree
Memorial Tree

A memorial tree was donated by the family of Richard Bartholomew, a Year 11 student of Collegiate High School, who lost his life in a tragic accident in 1993 when he was swept into the sea somewhere near Gynn Square.

 

Memorial Tree
50th Anniversary Tree

To mark the 50th anniversary of the Collegiate buildings here at Blackpool Old Road a Royal Oak sapling was planted in the front grounds. Donated by the Woodland Trust, the sapling had been grown from a seed collected from one of the royal household estates. The picture above shows the late Joyce Birtwhistle planting the sapling in May 2012.
