Merchant Taylors' are a famous family of Schools, each with an enviable reputation on Merseyside, throughout the North West of England, and nationwide.
About the school
As a relatively small school – with 579 pupils in the Senior School – we know every boy, and the dedicated teaching staff are committed to the individual needs of each child. First impressions are usually the warm, friendly atmosphere and the boys’ happiness and confidence.
We are academically selective but not socially exclusive - one of the strengths of the school is the good mix of pupils and staff. We have a curriculum tailored to meet boys’ needs but at the same time we benefit from close links with our sister school, Merchant Taylors’ Senior Girls' School, housed on the same road as us.
Whilst the academic work is of prime importance (and recent exam results have placed the Boys’ School as one of the best on Merseyside) what happens in the classroom is certainly not the only thing that matters. The boys take part in a great range of extra-curricular activities and we endeavour to provide something suitable for each individual to enjoy.
Extra-curricular activities include:
Duke of Edinburgh
Combined Cadet Force (CCF)
GTX – Gifted & Talented Xtension which includes activities such as bee-keeping, journalism, illustration, cricket and drama
Joint School musical and dramatic productions
Hockey, Cricket, Rugby and Football
Jazz bands, wind bands, orchestra and choir
Various trips abroad for most subjects. This summer, some of our Biology A Level students travelled to Mexico to conduct crucial conservation research in its rainforest and beaches.
