When former cricket international Michael Atherton OBE returned to his old school Manchester Grammar he opened the new sports hall. The former England cricket captain unveiled the new state-of-the-art sports hall. Atherton said at the time, “Sport has always played a fundamental role in MGS life and this has been reflected by the number of talented sporting figures the school has produced across such a wide range of disciplines”.
He went on to add, “This facility will provide an excellent venue for MGS to host other schools, for pupils to hone their skills and to one day go on to represent their school, county or even country. I’m proud to have been asked to come back and officially open the sports hall which will be used by the school for generations to come”.
