This site and its content © Gerald Sables 2013. Made With Serif WebPlus.
Welcome to the website for the former Percy Jackson Grammar School which was situated in the village of Woodlands on the outskirts of Doncaster in South Yorkshire. The aim of this website is to create a permanent record of this lovely Art Deco style school and to help preserve it’s memory and enable ex pupils to reconnect or to remain in contact with each other
If you are an ex pupil or member of staff or are just interested in our school, please feel free to browse the site. I have endeavoured to make it as interesting as possible and richly illustrate the site with scans of photos and documents from the school’s rich history as well as video footage.
You can also discover the latest information on any planned school reunions and other news related to the site.
We also have a shop where you can purchase a range of unique goods related to the school. All our work is voluntary and obviously this work does incur costs, such as web hosting fees, electricity, petrol, etc., and the sale of these goods helps to pay these fees so please help support us via the shop if you can.
Thank you for visiting, we hope you enjoy the site
