Custodial history:
The records were deposited in March 1982 by Mr. J. Bromley throughManchester Studies.Stockport and District Teachers Association was the local branch of theNational Union of Elementary Teachers (from 1889 the National Union ofTeachers). It appears to have covered a wide area and in the 1890'sincluded, at least for a time, teachers from as far afield as AlderleyEdge, Altrincham and Compstall. In 1889 'and District' was dropped fromthe title only to be reinstated about 1897; it was retained until 1949although teachers within Cheshire County formed their own association in1919.Education Groups were established in the Stockport Association in 1959.Minutes of only two groups are included here, the Secondary Modern whichceased in 1967 and the Primary Section from its brief rebirth that year.The North East Cheshire Teachers Association was founded in 1919. Although,according to the minutes, the Cheadle and Gatley area came under Cheadle andWilmslow rather than North East Cheshire from 1937, teachers from schools inthat area appear to have continued to be involved in the latter associationuntil at least 1940. By 1952 Bredbury, Romiley and Marple teachers belongedto the East Cheshire Teachers Association.The Stockport Metropolitan Teachers Association was formed in 1974 as aresult of local government reorganisation~ It covers an area similar tothat of the Stockport and District in its early years.Anyone wishing to use this material for a thesis, dissertation or similar,or with a view to publishing, is asked to consult the Archivist.M.J.
