The school occupies the same estate as Dovedale Infant School; the schools are sometimes jointly referred to as Dovedale Primary School. It is Dovedale Primary which is probably best known as the school which George Harrison and John Lennon of The Beatles, and Lennon's lifelong pal Pete Shotton, attended. In the 1950s it had a very good reputation as a 'feeder' school for Liverpool grammar schools such as Quarry Bank High School and Liverpool Institute for Boys.
