    Gateacre Comprehensive School, Liverpool

    Gateacre Community Comprehensive School opened in 1957,the lower block was the only building there until 1961 when the main block was added. Once completed it consisted of 4 floors A,B,C,D, 3 Gyms,3 Halls,3 Canteens,4 Playgrounds,1 Craft ,Design & Tech wing,1 Swimming Baths & countless classrooms. There were over 300 pupils & only 7 staff at the time
    before the main block was added.

    Gateacre's first headmaster,Mr Hughes laid down the ethos of the school motto, "suum cui que in gen ium" which apparently means "each to his own ability".I Am unsure if he actually designed the school badge but it has remained unchanged since the school was first opened.

    Situated just five miles from Liverpool city centre, Gateacre Community Comprehensive School has over 1,700 students and 170 staff.

    Since 2005, the school has been designated an ‘arts and humanities specialist college’ and has invested substantially in state-of-the-art technology in these areas.

    A new school building was commissioned to be built in the neighboring area of Belle Vale. The new building has cost over £35 million and plans have been made to include high tech features such as solar panels, wind turbines and a cyber cafe. The new building can now be easily identified opposite Belle Vale Shopping Center.

    The new school officially opened to students at the start of the 2011 Autumn Term.

    WIMR initially mentioned to me about this place closing and that they were having an open day for former students to visit before the place was knocked down, unfortunatley as i was not a former student i was unable to attend, so i asked him to keep an eye out for possible ways into the place for an unofficial visit later on.

    Fast forward a couple of days and the big move to the new school was on, everyone was busy packing stuff up and we managed to sneak in unnoticed and had a rather relaxed couple of hours wandering around.
