Merchant Taylors’ Junior Boys’ School is an independent day school for boys aged 7-11. Based in Crosby, Liverpool.  This non-denominational Christian school is one of the leading boys’ schools in the North West. Merchant Taylors’ Junior School is a happy, friendly academic environment where each pupil is encouraged to recognise and achieve his potential both individually and as part of a team.

Education of the whole child is our aim and outstanding academic results provide the foundations of what we achieve. Staff are experienced and their dedication to and understanding of individual boys, ensures the best atmosphere for them to grow. The Junior Boys’ School excels at teaching the basic skills combined with a breadth of learning. The boys are educated to have an enquiring mind and to be self-motivated. We believe in the correct balance between work and play – the boys are stretched but not stressed.



The Junior Boys’ School is a happy, hardworking environment where boys are carefully nurtured to achieve their potential. Many opportunities are available for boys to work together to achieve success, both individually and as part of a team. From the day the boys arrive, they are encouraged to be confident, find activities to enjoy and develop a high level of self esteem and a sense of fun. We are proud that the Junior Boys’ School gives every boy the best start in life”
