This is the fourth Wallasey Grammar School, and the first of two school buildings in Withens Lane. The school moved here from St George’s Road in 1876. These buildings faced directly onto Withens Lane, next to St Mary’s church. Due to the increasing population of Wallasey, the buildings became inadequate and a new, larger school building was erected further back from the road in 1911 leaving a playing field in front. The 1911 building survives today as Liscard Primary School.
