Tranmere
Hello,
I'm keen to find out information about Tranmere High School for girls which occupied the last two houses on Chesnut Grove where it meets Laurel Road. The house numbers were 20 -22, but the houses at this end of the road, which were there in 1882, are numbered differently now.

If anyone has any further info I'd be really grateful - I intend to look at Wirral archives in the near future....

Thanks

You have probably already seen this?

1882 - 1888
Higher Tranmere High School for Girls opened with 46 girls.
Two houses at the bottom of Chestnut Grove and Laurel Road (off Derby Road) were purchased and adapted. Miss Isobel Graves who had been a student at Newnham Cambridge was appointed the first Headmistress in 1882. Demand for places meant that pupils were being turned away, eventually and it became evident that new and larger premises were needed.
