The College was founded in 1840 and was a founding member of the Headmaster’s Conference and was a fee-paying school until September 2013, when it became an all-through academy for pupils aged 4 to 19 years old. The College also offers state boarding provision. In the last few years, it has become one of the most over-subscribed schools in the North of England.

Liverpool College was judged Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted at its last inspection in November 2019.

Our commitment to Learning with Character and our three core traits create a cohesive community across the entire campus and ensure we continue our founders’ intention to make the formation of character a prime purpose of education. Above all, Liverpool College is a happy, successful and outward-looking school with a clear mission and an undiluted belief in the importance of educating the whole person.
