Broughton Hall was built in 1860 for Gustavus C. Schaube of Hamburg, a prominent Liverpool merchant and the conservatory was added between 1870 and 1880. Broughton Hall High School was founded in 1928 under the Trusteeship of the Sisters of Mercy. It was previously known as Convent of Mercy Girls' High School.
Broughton Hall Convent
The Broughton Hall Convent is a 19th-century grade II* listed building.
The Sisters of Mercy purchased Broughton Hall in 1925, a former grand mansion in West Derby, as the site for a large school set in extensive grounds. As the school was developed in future years, teaching at the convent became less frequent until teaching was moved completely to the new school buildings. The convent is still home to the Sisters of Mercy.
