Gateacre School is a secondary school and sixth form located in Belle Vale, Liverpool, England. The school is Coeducational with both male and female pupils from years 7 to 11 and throughout the sixth form.HistoryThe school was built in two phases, a lower building in 1957 and was followed by a much larger 'Main Building' which was completed in 1961 . The buildings on the school remained relatively unchanged for 40 years until a Music Building and a Sixth Form and Food Technology building were added to the previous 'lower yard' and bike shed area in 2002.During the construction of the school, the playing field area needed to be levelled out. This proved difficult due to the nature of the ground, and it was decided by Liverpool Education committee that the most cost-effective method of leveling out the playing field area was controlled tipping . This led to a large difference in ground height of the field compared to the school buildings, with pupils required to walk up a set of steps equivalent to 2 storeys. This decision also meant that the land could not be built on in the future. This eventually led to the school's need to move locations under the Building Schools for the future government scheme as the only available ground on the Grange Lane site was the ground the current school footprint was held on, and a new school was required before the old one could be demolished.
