The Marsden St. Medical School was founded in 1829, it appears largely on the initiative of former lecturers at the Mount Street School including: Thomas Radford, George Freckleton, Thomas Fawdington and John Boutflower. Richard Hunt and George Shaw were also teachers at the School. John Pendlebury later taught medical jurisprudence at the School. which was the first in Manchester to offer this subject. John Windsor, John Roberton and Arthur Dumville were also on the staff at various times. Infirmary staff provided clinical lectures for the School's students. Little else is known about the School, and it closed in 1839, when its library was transferred to MRSM.
