Hyde Name Origins.

The name "HYDE" is derived from the hide, a measure of land for taxation purposes, taken to be that area of land necessary to support a peasant family. In later times it was taken to be equivalent to 120 acres .

Hattersley High School

Hattersley High School stood on Fields Farm Road in Hattersley. It was the only High school in Hattersley and was operational until it was closed and replaced by Alder Community High School in Gee Cross in 2003. It closed due to a combination of falling pupil numbers ,which was partially because of the population drop in the mid 1990's ,and parents opting to send their children to other High Schools in the area. I'm proud to say both my children attended this school (and Alder when Hattersley closed) and both came away with a great education and outlook on life thanks to very good ,caring teaching staff.
