The Liverpool Collegiate

Description

Former pupils and teachers from the 1930s and 40s return to Liverpool Collegiate's magnificent building, which has been restored and converted into flats, to reminisce about their time there.

The Liverpool Collegiate was a fee-paying grammar school for more than a thousand boys, however it closed in 1985 following a fire.

Find out about the rigorous academic expectations, the smells of the chemistry lab, playing hookey to watch the great West Indies cricket side on their tour of England, and the attempts of the teachers to teach sex education.

There is also a vivid description of what it was like to be at school in Liverpool during the Second World War, and gain a real understanding of the school's place in the social history of Liverpool.
