This book is more than a history of the oldest school of its kind in the world. Mike Royden looks at the changing society in Liverpool in the late eighteenth century, the philosophical, medical and educational developments, and the founding of contemporary institutions.
He has placed the School in its local, national and international context and has unearthed a wealth of material of value to the social historian and general reader alike. This is more than just a narrow history of a school - it is a reflection of the society round it.
