Nicholls' Hospital was founded by the bequest of Alderman Benjamin Nicholls, millowner, as a "memorial of his son John Ashton Nicholls. John Aston Nicholls had died in Originally, playing space with some form of hard surface area for football was available at the back of the school marked A in the image abovebordering up to Ardwick Cemetery, but this was taken over by extensions to the old building.
The Ardwick Cemetery itself, covering about 5 acres, had been opened in when there were no local authority cemeteries. Below you can see the original stone gate posts that stood at the entrance to Ardwick Cemetery. Byall further burials were prohibitied and the cemetery was transferred to the Corporation which was empowered to use the land for school playing fields or as an open space.
A record of the inscriptions on the tombstones was deposited with the Registrar General, and a copy placed in the Local History Library of the Central Library.
The burial registers were handed over into the custody of the Town Clerk. It was decided to develop the land as a playing field for Nicholls Secondary School, which, according to a brochure published at that time, thus became the first Secondary School in the inner area of the city to be extended to bring its accommodation up to modern standards and to have a playing field on its own site.
All three schools were locaed in close proximity. The Nicholls Building became the administrative centre of the school. Later buildings H and A were demolished and the school moved onto a single site.
There was another name change along the way when it was named in honour of a former pupil of Ardwick Higher Grade School the precursor of Ardwick Technical High Ellen Wilkinson. As an adult she was only 4 foot 10 inches tall but she became known as Red Ellen and she had a formidable personality.
The photograph below, shown with the permission of Peter Harden, shows the young Ellen with her mother and her brothers Richard and Harold. Clearly evident is the firery red hair that became her trade-mark. She inherited it from her maternal grandmother who had red hair long enough that she could sit on it. Ellen had ambitions to grow hers long too but eventually tired of it and had it cut short.
She can be see third from the left on the back row in this photograph of the Ardwick Higher Grade School Girls' Form taken sometime between and In she became Minister of Education. However, once again the winds of change were blowing in Manchester in when Ellen Wilkinson was merged with Spurley Hey to create a new school called Cedar Mount located in Gorton. It is the base for sports academies in football, rugby, cricket and basketball.Nicholls Campus offers courses for school leavers, adults and university level students.
