The school records are available to view at Wigan Archives.
The earliest school records are from Wigan Grammar School and date from 1597 (SR/WGS). The main bulk of school records date from the late nineteenth century.
Many of the records come from schools that have since closed. Admissions registers are the documents most commonly used for family history.
