The first reference to a school in Wallasey is in 1595 and concerns the classes held in the schoolroom at St Hilary’s church. The second Wallasey Grammar School, seen here, was erected by public subscription, on the east side of Breck Road, in 1799. Wallasey Mill on The Breck was used as a temporary classroom until the school was completed. Both boys and girls attended the school and in 1834 there were 83 pupils, 65 boys and 18 girls.
