    HISTORY- sunnymede primary was southports last remaining independent school , opening in 1964 and closing at the end of term in 2010 after celebrating its 50th anniversary .
    due to the falling number of pupils joining the school and increasing costs and the sheer amount of red tape and paperwork from the overbearing interference of the government education policies put paid to this once much loved local independent school .
    day pupils paid £5100 per term , the school catered for 3-11 year olds , the school could cater for 141 pupils at full capacity , the much loved headmaster was mr s pattinson.
    until the boundary changes of the early 70s the school was part of the lancashire county education board , then ended up in merseyside to the dismay of some .

    THE VISIT-got a tip off from local urbexer friends who had come across this place shortly before , access to the grounds was a matter of a straight walk in from the rear of the property.
    the school buildings and the adjacent music teachers house was a very pleasant relaxed explore , inside we found pianos and murials on the walls , we could still feel the once pleasant ambiance of the school and for once i felt sorry for this once much loved school , i would recommend this explore to anybody who fancies an easy relaxed explore .

    THE PICS- as usual i used my canon 10-18mm wide angled lens , not the crispest of shots but great for getting everything into one frame .
    ENJOY THE PICS FOLKS !

    I too am a former pupil of the school, I was there between 1979 and 1984. It's a shame to see the building so derelict, seeing the pictures reminds me of many things there. If I may, I can tell you what many of them correspond to. The long hall which has windows on one side and the stage at the back was the dining hall, and was also where we used to sit our exams. There used to be an outside swimming pool next to it. The little tower at the front of the building with two storeys housed on the ground floor the headmaster's study, on the first floor the staff room and on the second floor the music room. I remember playing that piano well! At the back of the stage was the library. The corridor leading to the wooden building at the back was the way to the first residence of the headmaster, when Alan Pattinson was in charge. He later had the other house built which is across the carpark (as was), and the room became used as a maths room. It was also where the school stationery shop was. Most of the senior classes took place on the ground floor of the main building, with the exception of science, French and senior maths. The junior school was upstairs and bordered the large landing at the top of the main staircase. Hope this is useful to you.

    Picture number 2 corresponds to what was the science lab, behind it was the French room. The classroom with the green mould on the walls which borders the old dining hall was our geography room. The picture beneath that one, with all the big cupboards in was the secretary's office.
