I don't know if people are aware but Wirral Borough Council are currently in consultation over the future use of the Rock Ferry High School site.
Development considerations include: Demolition of the buildings & the selling off the 3 playing fields.

We believe they're worth saving.

Ravenswood House is a Grade II Listed Building & the woodland area boasts many species of wildlife & trees. It is also used by the local community for play & recreation.

In addition, a Government report only yesterday highlighted that 900,000 more schoolchildren will be in the system over the next decade. They will need a school.

Maybe you live in the area, maybe you're an ex pupil or perhaps you have just enjoyed the space it offers?

If you have, can I direct you to our Facebook page & ask you for your support by signing our petition?

Over 750 people have signed since last night - please can you add your signature...& please share with family & friends.

Save Rock Ferry High School & Woodlands - Facebook Page.

https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/save-rock-ferry-high-school-and-woodlands

Thank you for your support.

Thank you so much for the support. The response has been phenomenal. I only started the petition last night & we're already at 900 signatures, plus there are old fashioned paper sheets being filled too.

Please do continue to share the information with friends, family & colleagues as, who knows, that one extra signature just might make a difference.

There's also some potential local media interest too so, hopefully, the momentum will continue.

Feel free to contact me if you need any information & I'll also update the sites with any News.

Thanks again for the responses & the support.

Shown on Bing Maps as a University Academy. Did it ever become one or did they just close it when it all moved to Park High

Might be worth emailing Old Rocks Rugby (prenton as it now is if you can find an address)

As an Old Instonian will happily sign petition and I hope you do better than we did with our old school playing fields (Ingleborough Rd- Birkenhead Institute)

Great News, we're at nearly 1100 signatures now & have positive interest from the Liverpool Echo & the Wirral Globe. Frank Field has also responded & is speaking to the Planning Department.

I've also been putting up posters in the local neighbourhood as the more awareness we can generate, the better.

Please do keep spreading the word & I'm very grateful too for the "heads-up" on useful people / groups to contact.

Finally, in answer to the questions regarding the school's current status: it did indeed become an Academy briefly before the pupils got transferred to Park High. It's now empty apart from being used to train the police dogs.

Thanks again for the support & do check out & "like" the Facebook Page
