    Default help needed

    Hi everybody,
    I'm new to the site, so if I've come to the wrong section could somebody please re-direct this post to the appropriate thread.

    I have a book which was presented as a school prize for 'french & latin' in July 1894. The front cover of the book is embossed with a crest and the words THE COLLEGE SCHOOL HUYTON RE-ESTABLISHED 1869.

    Does anybody have any information about this school ?

    Thanks in advance,
    leveller.

    I used to live in Huyton. There was a private school in an old building off Blacklow Brow, which is off Tarbock Road. If my memory serves me right this was called "Huyton College". I think it was a prep school, although at that time I didn't take much notice of buildings or history. Certainly the building looked quite old. I have a vague memory of the building being knocked down and then new houses being built. I could be wrong though. Maybe it's this you're looking for. I've not lived in Huyton for 20 years, so don't really know if the building is still there. Good hunting!

    Thanks burkhilly, Huyton college was a private school for girls which was founded in1894 and closed in 1993. As you say the site was apparantly used for housing.
    The 'College School Huyton' must have been a much earlier establishment as it was said to have been re-established in 1869
