This magnificent building was demolished before it`s time.
The play ground behind the building was huge and flagged very smoothly so
we would climb over the wall to play football and cricket at the weekends and after school hours,as all our streets around were all cobble stones.
We would put our coats or jerseys down as goal posts. We would often be
chased by the police as we were trespassing. If you left your coat behind
your mother would have to go to Westminster Rd police station to collect it.
This would result in 5/- fine sometimes, now the police would let you play there and supplythe goal posts and football kits.

Grosvenor Street, Liverpool 3. My old junior school. It's still there but used for something else now including a private nursery. Pic by Joe Devine.

We were allowed on the roof now and again, you could see Bidston windmill before all the tower blocks got in the way. My mate and I went back the school to have a look around and were given a guided tour, the old toilets are still in situ and all the old radiators in the classrooms.

Nice photo Ged. Interestingly, the collegiate was never a boarding school . It was built in the early 1840s and attempted to provide education to three levels of ability. Hence the name collegiate. It was essentially three schools in one( lower, middle and upper) It was designed by the same chap who designed St George's Hall. The school was sold to the Liverpool Corporation around the end of the 19th C when the Upper school of what is now Liverpool College moved to Lodge Lane, Toxteth.

Another view of my primary, Bishop Goss school as seen from Grosvenor Street. The gate to the left is where we entered, the newer building to the right was the assembly and dinner hall built in the late 60s whilst I was attending there. The grassed area once housed the New Adelphi cinema (which moved from nearby Christian Street), the new one was bombed during the war.

http://img299.imageshack.us/img299/9439/bishopgosssr3.jpg (http://imageshack.us)


St. Gregory's school, Prince Edwin Street. There were shields in the entrance hall that represented the house names of each of the 4 classes in each year. Aiden, Augustine, Bede and Columba. It later became Campion High school when they moved down from Shaw Street, Steve McManaman went here but after my time.

Front view.

Side view from near China Street playground.

http://img299.imageshack.us/img299/4968/stgregsrearpw2.jpg (http://imageshack.us)


This used to be the infants school and the senior school to Bishop Goss (also known as St. Joseph's (or St. Joeys). The front of the junior school can be seen to the right. Prior to the building of St. Gregorys school on Prince Edwin Street, this is where you'd automatically go after the age of 11. When St. Gregs opened, it only admitted boys at first and the girls aged 11+ still went here until they too were accepted into St. Gregs in the early 1970s.

I just found out the following...
Paul Macca spent most of his early school years here. In 1953 he sat, and passed, his 11 plus exam which led to his place at the Liverpool Institute. Paul's brother, Michael, also attended Joseph Williams and later followed Paul to the Institute.
The above photos are from that school.

some notes about Joseph Williams CP school

Joseph Williams CP was the first school to be built in Liverpool after the war
it opened on 26th August 1949 & closed in 1997

Sir Paul McCartneys name appears in the admission register on the 23 August 1950.two years later he left to attend the Liverpool Institute.His brother Michael,better known as Mike McGear ,came to the school from 28 August 1951 to August 1955 when he too left to go to the institute

Les Dennis also attended the school in 1961

St Johns in Kirkdale reaches the end of its life as it gets demolished this week.
This is the school I started my education in, obtaining a scholarship in, to go on to SFX college.
I had no idea it was being demolished I just came upon it on a walk around Walton and Kirkdale. So I took a few pics then retired to the Saddle Inn on Fountains road to cry into a pint.
Notice the artwork on the upper walls.
When they build schools now they have a life span of about 40 years, all my
children`s have been demolished both juniors and seniors already

Sad sight that GD, just for it to sit as a wasteland I suppose. Good job you got a pic of it a few months ago. It's very similar to my old one - Bishop Goss, that's still up and being used. Wellington Road one in Dingle is similar too, all built in ther same era.

I went to St. Johns infants, and remember everyones enthusiasm, about getting to the juniors, simply because the playground was on the roof(Just imagine the consequences, if it was still used as a school now:shock:) Do you remember the headmaster around 1960,G.D.? Mr. Taylor, He went on to English Martyrs,round the corner,which has also been demolished!

was gutted when I went to photograph my old school (Lawrence Rd) few years ago to find it had been demolished.

however tthe top of the bell tower was refurbished and put in the playground

Oooh I've just found this post.....I work at Lawrence Road, I've been there around 8 years now. The picture of the wall made up of different parts of the old building is called the "sunshine wall". Inside the foyer at the main entrance there is a piece of artwork made from the old building. I'm back to work on Monday so I'll get some pics for you. Oh I must tell you, we found the schools official 'Log Book'. It's quite incredible, it goes back years (I can't remember first date of entry) but the log finishes around 1989. A third of a way through the book were all of the entries during the war times. It was really sad to read. It spoke of bombing, evacuation and casualties. Again, I'll see if I can get some pics of it on Monday.

how wonderful. I was there earlier in the year and asked would I be able to look around. one of the receptionists said I'd have to wait til the school was empty, which was fair enough. haven't had chance to organise it over the summer sadly.
look forward to hearing more.
When I was there Miss Venables was the head and in the infants I think it was Mrs Moffat. it was a long time ago lol. Mrs Owen was my fave teacher in the infants.
I had a bad accident when I was 10 and it's taken years for me to remember more bits from my infant/junior days. every time I see a photo of the school or a former pupil posts summat on Friends-reunited it's sparks my memory bank again.

her name just came to me Mrs Miles was head of the infants when I was there. she was from the North East I think and used to say "eat up your fudd children". we couldn't always grasp her accent as 5 years old lol.

08-29-2008, 05:13 PM
I can imagine which receptionist you spoke to! lol Mrs Moffat was a dinner lady and she's still involved with the school and is on the board of Governors as was Mrs Owens until this year.
It's such a shame they knocked the old school down, we have such little space now. Do you remember a Miss Hillier or Mrs Kerr? They are still teaching at the school. I'll take loads of pics on Monday of the inside of the building as well, the children aren't back until Tuesday:PDT11

What a great site for anybody wanting to check out their old school info & pics!! :)

Here's a few pics I took of WALTON ST. MARY C of E PRIMARY School in Bedford Rd, Walton, where I worked for 8 wonderful & unforgettable years until this year, when I moved on to Alsop.

They are probably the last pics taken of it as 'W.S.M', as it has recently merged with Arnot St school, so is now known as Arnot St Mary. (Although the 'main' part of the school is over on the old Arnot St school site ):neutral:

Childwall Sports College

Kev

I think the photo captioned "Childwall Sports College" looks more like the long demolished Childwall Valley High School for Girls. I went to what is now Childwall Sports College on Queens Drive light years ago when they called it Holt High School and remember that both schools were of very similar appearance except from the central towers which were built in quite different styles.

Thanks for the pic of Broad Square Infants where I went before "big school".

There are loads of primary schools in Liverpool 8 and not enough children to fill them. Liverpool City Council are reviewing the primary education at the moment - so expect at the very least five schools to close. These closures will primarily be in the best interests of the children, and nothing to do with saving loads of money!!! (To be fair looking at the numbers, three schools do need to close, but Liverpool City Council always likes to take things further.)

Will keep you informed of how the review "in the best interests of the children" is going!

Whilst in the LRO yesterday looking through some old Catholic Pictorials for something, some photos caught my eye so I thought i'd snap some of em' to show on here to see if anyone recognises themselves or some old mates.


1) The first one is the cast of 'little Billy' at All Hallows, Speke in June 1969.

2) The first intake of children to Archbishop Whiteside school in 1968 from Our Lady of Reconcilliation school, Eldon Street.

3) St Francis Xaviers, February 69.

4) St. Philomena, April 69.

5) St. Aloyisous, Twig Lane, Huyton - May 69.

6) St. Cecilia's, Tuebrook, May procession 69.

7) St. Annes, Overbury street, June 1969.

8) St. Anthonys, Scotland Road. 1st Holy communion in June 69.

9) Bishop Goss last 60 seniors before the girls school was closed down with new seniors now attending the newly opened St. Gregory's on Prince Edwin Street.

10) Gerard Crescent Southport outing in September 69.

My old school has gone ! it's the end of an era for many Anfielders.
This is the infants school on Pinehurst rd which has been demolished, the infants will be merged with the juniors on Pinehurst ave.
I have heard rumours that the junior school will eventually go too and that a new school will be built.


The infants was a very small school with only about 4 classes. It was falling into disrepair over the years.
It seems strange seeing a blank space where the school was. Lots of memories here - it's sad but inevitable it had to go.

Perhaps it was because the area was "filled in" with houses just after WWII and the schools might be newer?

The school has been replaced and is the newly built North Liverpool Academy on Heyworth st.
