About Us

Stockport Grammar School has a long and distinguished history. One of the oldest independent schools in the country, it was founded by Sir Edmond Shaa in 1487 and became co-educational in 1980.

From the rural and remote North-West of England, Shaa enjoyed a dazzling rise to national influence as the Court Jeweller to three kings of England, Prime Warden of The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths and Lord Mayor of London. Generations of local girls and boys have benefitted from his legacy.

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Stockport Grammar School’s move to the Hallam site in 1916 the Old Stopfordians’ Association has pledged an initial generous donation enabling the school to re-establish its archive materials through this online collection.
