The Sleeping Giant
Anfield Road Primary School
Our beautiful school has been the heart of the community for over 135 years, originally known as Walton-on-the-Hill up until the first part of the 20th century. The school is famous for its Bell Tower which has stood tall through many historical events. Although the interior of our school has changed a lot, the exterior has stayed almost the same with lots of historical features.
1972 and 2021
“Wonderful school, I enjoyed every minute from 1960- 1966”
Here are some photographs from the early 1960s. The photos show the very successful school football team who were unbeaten for two years and in their time they won the Jack Sharpe Shield, Hall Cain Sheild and Lascelles Cup with their teachers Mr Williams and Mr Nuttall.
When their time at Anfield came to an end, most went on to Grammar School and led on to having successful careers including a firefighter, financial advisor, three teachers and a football coach.
Thank you Steve Darby for sharing your memories with us.
