The main school building was built as a private residence, 'The Tower' in Mill Lane, Rainhill near Prescot, Merseyside, for Henry Baxter and his family in 1880.
During World War I, 'The Tower' operated as a war hospital before being bought by Charles and Muriel Oxley to establish their first school in 1948. Oxley went on to establish two further schools - Scarisbrick Hall School, near Ormskirk in 1964 and Hamilton College, Lanarkshire in 1983.
The school has a broad curriculum covering all major subjects, together with specialist sport, music and languages teaching throughout the school. From Year 3 on there are also regular trips and visitors. There is a wide range of extracurricular activities, including choir, instrument ensembles, performing arts as well as sports. Academic Standards at Tower College are consistently high, with exam results often above both the local and national averages.
