Huyton College

Huyton College

Huyton College was a private school for girls founded in 1894 as the sister school to Liverpool College. It closed in 1993, a few months short of its 100th birthday. It catered for girls between the ages of 6yrs to 18yrs. It was a school for both day girls and boarders. The main boarding house names being; St Hilda's, St Mary's, St Margaret's, St Claire's and prep. St Anne's/St Catherines. The sixth formers were housed at The Grange.

During the 2nd World War the girls were relocated to continue their education to Blackwell House in the Lake District.

During the 1970/80s the school uniform was divided into two season's winter and summer. The winter attire was a blue Harris Tweed coat and cap with matching tweed skirt! and blue nylon blouse (later cotton for obvious reasons). A black full length wool cloak with a cowl hood with the individual house colour was also part of the uniform but mainly worn by the boarders to keep them warm whilst running back and forth from houses. The summer uniform was a black wool blazer, cotton dress (again in house colours) and a staw boater with blue trim.

Some of the main teachers during the 70s were: Mrs Pinsent (Latin & Greek Studies), Mr & Mrs Lishman & Mrs MacLoughlin (Maths), Mr Ferguson (Geography), Miss Britton (French)Miss Howard (Latin), Mrs Goudy (drama), Miss Devine (Art), Miss Oates, Mrs Lloyd (Biology), Miss Savage (Chemistry).

Huyton also had its own private school chapel (Canon Donald Grey was the School Chaplain in the 70s, now at the House of Westminster). This was used on a daily basis for both morning prayer and evening song (for the boarders). Within the grounds were the playing fields, tennis courts and swimming pool and Sanatorium. The Orchard was the main access road through the grounds.

Mrs Eluned Rees was the Headmistress during the 1970s and early 80s. The School buildings and grounds have now been redeveloped into private residential housing.

There is an annual Service for the Old Girls Guild and Luncheon held each year at the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral during October.
