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 .

Hyde Grammar School 1973

The following was sent to us by Derek Chappell who taught at Hyde Grammar School.
Over to Derek....

"I was searching through some old photos and came across the enclosed photos of the old Form 1x in 1973!

I hope they will bring back some happy memories to some of the boys in the photos."

What a nice follow on from my previous post sometime ago class of 73

This post has brought some happy memories flooding back the smell of the classroom the glazed green tiles that seemed to be everywhere in the interior of the grammar if you look in the photo's of us in class the pile of brief cases at the back it was a right free for all for these at the end of the day

Many thanks for this post Mr Chappell
