|The PRESCOTIAN was first launched
onto the World Wide Web on 19th. May 2000 by
Trevor Powell, a former pupil of Prescot Grammar
School from 1963 to 1970. Its original mission
was that of a contact site for Prescotians to
track down old friends.
Membership is open
to all former pupils and teachers of Prescot
Grammar School, Prescot Grammar School for Girls
and Prescot School. All database entries of
contact details are confidential and protected by
a Password Gate. To gain access to the Database, registration is required.
quickly became apparent that there was a desire
to preserve memories of the School. It was about

subsequently, the Prescot School, successor to
the two grammar schools from the early seventies.
one hundred members had enrolled within five
months and the thousand mark reached in January
2002, when Phil McCormick from Liverpool signed
onto the site. The site continues to grow with
offers of archive material appearing steadily.
14th January, 2005 Paul Gerrard from New Zealand
claimed the honour of being the one hundred
thousandth visitor to the site!
