Woolton County Primary School was opened in 1957 on Out Lane, in Woolton (Liverpool, UK). It was built with two departments - the Infants and Juniors. Originally the Infants' Department had six classrooms (on two corridors of three), and the Juniors' had eight classrooms, in one block with four on each floor. Each department had its own assembly hall, but both shared a common canteen and kitchen. In the early 1960s four more classrooms were added to the Junior Department, in one block with two on each floor. In 1966 a new wing of three Infants' classrooms was opened, with windows facing onto the school drive. By 1970 three pre-fab classrooms were in use, one (pictured) for the Infants, the other two for the Juniors.
The "baby boom" of the 1960s plus housing developments nearby (especially in the Charterhouse Road and Rosefield Road areas) saw even greater influxes of pupils. In the morning, vast hordes of children swarmed along Hunts Cross Avenue. A special school bus (the 676) was introduced in 1966 from the bottom of Manor Road to the junction of Hunts Cross Avenue and Out Lane, and proved so popular that two buses were filled every morning.
At its peak in the early 1970s, around 900 children attended this school, which had over 30 teaching staff.
