As an Old Girl who went to Notre Dame High School in the fifties I agree with everything Griffin has said. In summer the nuns patrolled the playing fields and if west park were on the field it was more like 20 ft from the Brook. Rules were plentiful. An all girls school run by nuns was no place of fun. Still, felt lucky to be there. Dedicated subject rooms. Art. Science. Cookery. Playing fields for hockey. Netball etc . And out of school some of their influence stuck. Don't remember much sex education though. Had a Biology lab. But only learned about Amaeba's multiplying and dividing . Still don't know what one is. lol.

Our headmaster was a raving looney with a christ fixation,he spent more time at church than the school,if it was down to him so would the pupils, the other teachers laughed at him behind his back during assembly,where he would rant on about the writing in the toilets and how sick and twisted the perpetrators were,he was probably the one doing it.Our geography teacher,Mr B was a short fat ugly git with a chip on his shoulder,our woodwork teacher was superb,a real top bloke,he would call you by your surname without it sounding demeaning,our biology teacher miss D was fantastic,the science teacher Mr L was a prick who i now know knew fk all about science,art teacher,great,technical drawing teacher,great,one of the sports teachers great,it wasn't a bad school,but i dont miss it,never have,never will.

I attended Parr Central Boys School from 1946 to 1950.It was a first class school under the Headteacher Jack Houghton.I played in the Rugby and Soccer teams and also took part in the Gilbert & Sullivan Operas. We got a very good education from a great staff,including a number of ex servicemen who had served in WW2 with great life-skills.

I am new here and attended the new West Park at Alder Hey Road 1965-1972.

 

I was in town recently, and was reminiscing about the loss of a close relative, when I recalled that although I started at the new West Park I did visit the Old West Park once with my parents, to pick up my school uniform.

 

So I walked up Prescott Road to see if I could locate the Old School and if I could remember it.

 

I found West Park Road but the school was gone and replaced by a housing estate.

 

Try as I might I couldn't remember much about that one visit around August 65, apart from getting off the bus on Prescot Road, and then being inside the buildings with my parents where a lady issued my school uniform. I couldn't even remember the access door .

 

I did some research on the web and located some ariel pics of the Ravenhead works in 39 and 47, and they showed quite well the Old School.

 

As for Alder Hey road I didn't enjoy my time there at all, like a fish out of water, but after unexpected O level success, I completed the further two A level years and did ok.

 

I can remember most of the teachers already mentioned , and a couple of other names stick in my mind, "Jasper" - Physics teacher, Dennis LaVell - Maths, Gilmore- geography ,and an Irish bloke , taught RE?, who everybody made fun of - even the staff.
