Calderstones is situated opposite the park of the same name, which boasts the famous Bronze Age Calder Stones.
Calder school was a girls’ school which opened in the early 1920s.
Quarry Bank was a boys’ school which opened slightly later. The school’s most famous pupil was John LENNON. My daughter - a leading authority on John LENNON at the age of 12 - insisted that i included this information!
These two schools merged with Morrison Secondary School to form Quarry Bank High in 1967, changing the name to Calderstones Comprehensive in the mid 1980s.
