Does anybody know the History of the School?

Curiosity has me after I was walking past there tonight.

Is it still open and operating as a school?

I was under the impression that Handel stayed at the hotel while on his way to Ireland and waiting for his boat to take him there from Parkgate. He is supposed to have finished writing 'Messiah' while staying there, and to have tried it out at Chester Cathedral. It might be truth or fantasy, don't know - but it's a nice story!

Text from Wikipedia.

During the years when the port existed, two distinguished guests stayed in the local hostelries. One was Lord Nelson's mistress, (Lady) Emma Hamilton, who was born in nearby Ness and who used to bathe at Parkgate, apparently as a cure for a skin complaint.[5][6] The other was Handel who stayed in Parkgate before sailing to Dublin in April 1742 for the first performance of Messiah. He had finished Messiah in the summer of 1741 and at most he could only have added minor touches to the work in Parkgate.

Also has some about Mostyn House School.As follows:

Mostyn House School, a striking black and white building, was opened in Parkgate in 1855. From 1862 until it closed in 2010, it was run by the Grenfell family, most recently as a co-educational day school. Sir Wilfred Grenfell (18651940), famous medical missionary to Newfoundland and Labrador, was born in Parkgate and was a pupil at the school.[10]

I hope you find the above helpful. Neston Library is just up the road and there may well be more information there and in Chester Archives.

I'm sure that Mark or one of the mods will delete these comments and put the thread back on track, after all I can't imagine many wiki members fancy applying for jobs in Pakistan... raftl

I know a few people who were pupils at that school up until about 1996- If anyone remembers Wellington Independent Grammar in bebington, it was closed as it went bust and Mostyn House took all the pupils on from their.

I was out there today and and yes the road is closed right in front of the school - they'll need to sort that out before the summer as you can't drive from one end to the other, you have to go round
Took some photos but building looks as it has always looks to me
Such a shame if they just end up knocking it down but I suppose it's work a fortune to some developer

I was told by someone in the council that there is an order on the site that whatever they do with it then it has to be to do with education, apparently.
