The Heritage Centre,
The Old Sunday School was founded by John Whittaker and built in 1814. Funding for the school came from the silk industries and from the people of Macclesfield. The ground floor exhibition tells the story of the Sunday School itself; its routines and rules, and the day to day lives of the families who attended. A basement gallery signposts visitors to other places of historic interest around the town and includes a film show of Macclesfield past and present.
Our Creative Learning Studios operate from within and in partnership with Arts and Heritage organisations, for an alternative approach, with enhanced careers and progression opportunities. We support additional/high needs routes to wellbeing, attainment and sustained engagement.
