Welcome and Introduction
Welcome to the Ecclesfield School Virtual Community website, the meeting place and discussion forum for all ex-pupils and staff of Ecclesfield School, Sheffield, UK. This website has been set up by the Community of ex-pupils to enable members to maintain/renew contacts, and exchange information.

School History
Ecclesfield Grammar School was opened in 1931 by the West Riding County Council (WRCC). Significant additions to the buildings were made in 1953, and again in the 1960s. The school became Ecclesfield Comprehensive in 1967, having amalgamated with the newly-built Hunshelf School. The catchment area covered Ecclesfield, Chapeltown, Hoyland, Hoyland Common, Elsecar, Grenoside, Oughtibridge, High Green, Bradfield, Stannington, Worrall, Thorpe Hesley and Wharncliffe Side.

Contacts List
Over the years, lots of people used the Contacts List to keep in touch with old mates. It allowed people to add their contact details in a password protected environment, and to send messages to others. Many of the email addresses linked (but not displayed) were out of date and the list needs reorganising.
Let me know how useful the contact list was, and whether you want it to continue in its existing format.
