A Warm Welcome to The Prescotian! The Prescotian was founded in May, 2000. Its enduring aim is to conserve the heritage of Prescot Grammar School, Prescot Girls Grammar School and Prescot School.

Prescot Grammar was founded in 1544 and is the second oldest grammar school in the country. The Prescot Girls Grammar School opened in 1955. As part of the drive to comprehensive education took place, the two schools dropped the term "grammar" from their names.

By 1976, both grammar schools became fully comprehensive on the two sites. However, after arson attacks on the boys' campus, the schools merged to form Prescot School in the late seventies at the girls campus.

The boys campus was sold for housing development. In 2009, after 465 years, Knowsley Council summarily dismissed the school history as it replaced it with the new Knowsley Park Centre for Learning!
