The History Of Wirral


In the Summer term we will investigate the life and impact of William Hesketh Lever on Wirral and Port Sunlight in particular. We will then look at the development of transport in Wirral, development of religion and politics, Birkenhead and Wirral's highpoint around 1900-10, the decline of Wirral economically after 1918, and how Wirral gained its current role. We will also look at primary evidence of various Wirral sites and people. Learning style as before -  use of evidence, discussion, investigation, and class inter-action with a bit of humour added.
