In accordance with the 1944 'Education Act' it became a necessity for Walney-Island to have it's own secondary school. The present Sandy Gap site being agreed for the purpose during 1951.


WANTED: On many occasions Walney Secondary has produced some very fine performances on its 'main hall' stage, most recently during 2012, a very admirable adaptation of 'Les Misrerables' was presented, but even this couldn't compare to an early 80's performance entitled 'Dracula Spectacular', and which was filmed directly onto video (VHS, by a gentlemen named Price, I think?) and then offered for sale to raise funds for the school. I've made numerous attempts over the years to trace a copy, but without success. If anyone can locate a copy (I am willing to purchase at a fair price) I'd be grateful if you can contact me here
