Riot and Rebels!

Did you know there was a riot in Macclesfield?  A potato riot!  And what about the visit of Bonnie Prince Charlie to the town in 1745?

To celebrate the recent purchase of the Joseph Wright portrait of John Stafford, who was there with the rebels in 1745, and also the re-enactment of the Macclesfield potato riot on 13 April 2017, staff and pupils at Fallibroome Academy are collaborating with other schools from the Silk Alliance to take these events as inspiration for an exciting new display.
