History
This was originally called Eddesbury, built about 1885 - one of the last grand mansions constructed in West Derby.

Mr Cunningham, who had a disabled son, was among the wealthy people who pioneered outings for children with disabilities. They would take the children and carers on outings to Wirral and elsewhere in their expensive cars. The Cunninghams knew Councillor Margaret Bevan, later Liverpool's first woman Lord Mayor. It is believed this is how Liverpool City Council acquired this building. The school was named after Miss Bevan, serving children in need of specialist education for decades.
