    Arrow West Derby Comprehensive,Liverpool,Oct 2010.

    Just thought i would throw this up seeing as it's almost gone now...

    Info & B&W pics from the net..

    The post-war 'baby-boom' resulted in a much higher number of teenage children in the 1950s. Liverpool Corporation embarked on a massive school building programme..

    West Derby High School was opened in September 1957 by the first Head Teacher who was Mr A.L Casson. The school was designed by Liverpool Architects Harold E Davies and Sons to house 540 boys. Harold E Davies died in 1952, so it is unlikely that he was involved with the plans, his son Harold Hinchcliffe probably designed the building which took about two years to complete.

    Originally West Derby was designed to be used in collaboration with nearby Holly Lodge girls school, and in 1984 there were unsuccessful plans to merge the two schools into one.

    West Derby School is now a single site school as of September 2010 when it relocated a few hundred yards to a brand new building on West Derby Road, as part of the Building Schools for the Future scheme.

    Famous ex-pupils include..

    * Actor Craig Charles
    * Radio DJ Kev Seed
    * Actor George Wilson
