About this photo

Situated in Heath Road, Wirral Grammar School for Boys was officially opened on 26 September 1931, at the same time as an almost identical building, Wirral Grammar School for Girls, was opened round the corner in Cross Lane. The main building has changed little externally, but new extensions have been added to cope with expanding populations and new educational trends.

In 1955 the Grammar School would have been in preparation for its 25th anniversary the following year. Under modern educational administration, this leading establishment is a selective foundation school catering for 11- to 18-year-olds. This photograph was taken during high summer (note the open windows), but we wonder how many of today's pupils have ever seen Cross Lane so devoid of traffic at any time of year.
