Water Street School was erected in 1846 as an elementary school. In the 1920s it was known as the Bollington Council School and later became Bollington’s own secondary school until its closure in the 1960s. Since then, most of Bollington’s secondary aged pupils have attended Tytherington High School. In 2014, the building was transferred from Cheshire East Council to BIT and is now the property of the Trust.

On the ground floor, the building is used by Bollington Pre-School. For more information go on www.bollingtonpreschool.org.uk


BIT took ownership of this fine Victorian building from the previous owners, Cheshire East Council in order to find productive uses for it which would cover the costs of management and maintenance. The aim is to manage the building as a community resource known as the Water Street Centre. The “anchor” community group is Bollington preschool who BIT are working closely with, offering help and support. Significant repair work needs to be done to maintain the building and usage of the upper floor is currently being explored.
