Hi Jeffro,

I think any records are held by Liverpool Record Office:-

http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/nra/searches/subjectView.asp?ID=O105891

However, I think it is currently closed for major refurbishment and they are operating from a temporary location.  I would email them and see if they can help you.

Good luck.

It may be worth googling the school as there is quite a bit about it on line.  R. :)

Hi...I went to St Margarets High School in Aigburth...right opposite was the allotments which I think were part of Underlea school...they built Sudley Road School on the allotments about 1963/64 but Underlea school remained open until the mid 1970`s......I remember that the children at Underlea came from all over Liverpool and they had a special Corporation bus to pick the children up...many of the kids had health problems, so they were more or less picked up by their homes to save them walking...
I knew 2 lads who went there in the early 60`s...both from Speke,Liverpool.....allan :)

I think the school was to help children who had tuberculosis by putting them in a healthier environment.

Nothing to do with the pupils who were there, but I used to go to our Girl Guide meetings there on a Friday night late 50s early 60s.  They had wonderful grounds there and lots of facilities even in those days ;)

Cheers

Hiya Chris....Portus and Rhodes are still going...next to the Dealers Arms pub..
St Margarets was built on Taylors Farm.
The Winter Gardens was knocked down 6 years ago and flats were built there.
I used to live right opposite in Heald st and my son lives there now.
