My grandmother, Daisy Wood was born in this building, the old High School, in 1883 and later attended as a pupil. She marked an X on the photo showing she was born on the right of the building upstairs in 1883. Her father was William Wood, an educationalist, who also taught in later years with Daisy circa 1903/4 at the Wigan Institute. I believe they were Headmaster and Headmistress.
