HORSLEY'S GREEN SCHOOL
STOKENCHURCH, NEAR HIGH WYCOMBE. BUCKINGHAMSHIRE
DID YOU ATTEND HORSLEY'S GREEN SCHOOL ??
During the second world war the government formed the National camp school corporation to build and manage a number of "Camp Schools" built in the style of a small army camp. These schools were used to evacuate children at risk from the blitz and run by the local councils from whose area the evacuees came. After the war ended there was no longer a need for these schools and they were put on the for sale market and offered to local education committees. Some were pruchased by the larger counties and were run as boarding schools.Lancashire purchased Stokenchurch Camp School, latter renamed Horsley's Green School and so here starts our story.
Lancashire Education Committee ran Horsley's Green School a boarding school for boys near High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire from 1947 until the early 1970's. In order to attend the school boy's had to attend a secondary school run by Lancashire Education Committee this meant that boy's from the County Boroughs such as Blackburn, Wigan and Warrington and the Cities of Liverpool and Manchester were excluded from attending. But this did mean that there were boy's from the Furness district in the north to Ashton on Mersey in the east and Widnes in the South west.
