Agreed, fedup. I went to John Rigby at Orrell. It was a boys' grammar school built for the benefit of many working class kids from Wigan, Hindley, Leigh, Pemberton, Chorley etc. I had a great time there. No snobbery there. As you say, fedup, just lads who [for most of the time anyway!] were prepared to work!
