Sir, — As a former pupil of the Bluecoat School in Liverpool, and as the
eldest of four brothers who spent more than 18 years at the school, may I add
my surprise to that of the head, Sandy Tittershills, that Liverpool diocese is
claiming it to be a C of E school
(News, 11 February).
While we went to chapel each week, we certainly did not think of ourselves
as a church school. The two church secondary schools in Liverpool were St
Margaret’s for boys and St Hilda’s for girls.
