The definitive history of one of the town's most illustrious institutions - for all who went to, or can remember, the school, but also with a wealth of local information for those who didn't.
'Follow the Master'
"Follow the Master: A History of Heanor Grammar School, 1893 - 1976" is the definitive account of the history of a well-known institution in the town. Written after 2½ years research, by this site's webmaster, Robert M. Mee, the history was first promised 34 years ago, in the last edition of the school magazine, The Heanorian. Although it is over thirty years since the school closed, it is still well-remembered, and the buildings of 1912, along with subsequent extensions, still stand as part of the South East Derbyshire College.
The book itself has over 150 pages, and is illustrated throughout.
The cost of the book is £8.50, and it can be purchased locally, as well as at meetings of the Society.
The book can also be ordered directly from this site.
