Hi,

Just tried this....went to familysearch.org  then  clicked on United Kingdom and Ireland.  Then scrolled down to England, Cheshire School Records 1796-1950.   Clicked on that and  typed in John Smith (there was sure to be one!) and got several results.

Must have a go at that and see if I can find myself. ;D ;D

Modified - Nope, I'm not listed.  Lots of the records I looked at seemed to be Church schools or else not in the area of Cheshire where I went to school.  I'm going to look for some g.grandparents and older tomorrow.  As they could all read and write, I'm sure they went to school.

Hi

The link below has a list of schools. A quick look through suggests the majority are Church schools and they are possibly from the C of E Archives at Chester.

Wirral Archives do hold some school records. The link below is a list of schools
