Quarry Bank Grammar School, Liverpool

Quarry Bank Grammar School, Liverpool

The young troublemaker John Lennon studied at the Quarry Bank Grammar School between 1952 and 1957. It is located in Mossley Hill, Liverpool, at Harthill Road and was founded in 1922. John's closest friend, Pete Shotton, also frequented Quarry Bank Grammar. Together, they broke all the rules: smoking, fighting, swearing, and so on. In 1956, a skiffle band called the Quarrymen formed. In the same year Ernest Pobjoy became the headmaster of the school. He allowed the band to play in the building's hall. He was the person who encouraged John in his interest in music and recommended him to the Liverpool College of Art.
