Schools in Skelmersdale

Skelmersdale is a modern and well-connected Lancashire town, with a rich history dating back almost 2,000 years. Founded as a Roman resting point, it was later a medieval village and witnessed industrial growth during the 19th century as a coal mining center. In 1961, Skelmersdale became the United Kingdom's first new town, designed to accommodate an overspill population from Liverpool. Today's Skelmersdale offers a mix of housing, industrial space, and substantial green space, owing to its history as a new town. The town is known for innovation in urban design, as it features a road network that manages traffic without traffic lights. Its population has grown to around 38,813, and the town continues to develop with ongoing regeneration programs and future transit improvements.
