According to OTS News, a consultation into a proposed redevelopment of the school is to begin following discussions between Sefton Council and Octopus Healthcare.

Octopus Healthcare plan to redevelop the site into Extra Care accommodation, which includes creating up to 120 apartments, a bistro, residents’ lounge, library and salon. The proposed plans can be seen here.

An exhibition of the proposed scheme will be available to see in the Churchtown Room at Southport Town Hall on 15 March from 2pm till 7.30pm.

UPDATE 15.3.18
Representatives from Octopus Healthcare Group were at Southport Town Hall today with various displays showing their proposed plans for the school site. Following this consultation and getting feedback from interested parties, a planning application will be submitted to Sefton Council and a decision is expected in June/July.

  1. The old school deserves to be converted into this. Beautiful conservation and well planned. I hope the plans are accepted. Fabulous.

  2. Hello to all.

    Some time ago I posted an e-mail regarding the School and could not see a positive future for the building and grounds, especially when the fire and part of the School was demolished. Now after all this time watching the place falling apart (heartbreaking) its looking hopeful for the site to be restored and put into good use. The local authority, planners and neighbours in the area should allow this to move forward as its gone on long enough looking for answers!! Like Irene Bassett says our old school deserves it. So many memories etc!

    Fingers crossed eh!
