Administrative history:
Bennett St. Sunday School was founded in 1801 by David Stott. It first occupied premises in Gun St. and Primrose St. and in 1808 moved to George Leigh St. Ancoats. In 1818 a new building was erected in Bennett St. on land leased from the trustees of Hulme's Charity and on 13 Dec. the children marched from George Leigh St. to their new school. At first the Sunday School was connected with St. Clement's and St. Luke's, and from 1823 with St. Clement's only. Then in 1824 the trustees found themselves in doctrinal disagreement with the Rev. William Nunn of St. Clement's and so they separated the School from St. Clement's and attached it to St. Paul's.
The School was the most important Sunday School in Manchester and it remained in existence until 1966. The building was demolished in 1970 and the trust wound up in 1975 its funds being transferred to the Bennett St. Educational Foundation.
