Schools in Stockport

Stockport, a town within Greater Manchester, is rich in history and offers a vibrant modern environment. Originally a small village in the 13th century, Stockport was granted a charter by the monarch, introducing a market and fair trade expansion. Medieval Stockport thrived on cloth weaving and other industries such as blacksmiths, carpenters, and tailors. Stockport further developed in the 18th century, becoming renowned for silk weaving. By the end of the 19th century, Stockport's population grew significantly due to the success of industries like cotton and hat-making. Despite industrial decline in the 20th century, engineering became an important industry, and Stockport has since seen diverse economic development. In 1965, the Merseyway Shopping Centre opened, and in 1992, a major landmark, the Pyramid, was constructed. The town currently boasts a population of almost 300,000 and includes the districts of Bredbury, Marple, and outlying villages and suburbs.
