St John Rigby College became the first Catholic sixth form college in the country in 1972.
It bears the name of Blessed John Rigby who was canonised by Pope Paul IV just two years earlier.
Since then, it has grown and developed into an outstanding, inclusive learning community serving students from across Wigan, Merseyside and West Lancashire.
As part of our 50th celebrations staff, students and SJR alumni have been collecting photographs.
