Please note - The Beatles Shop will be closed from Sunday 26th February while we have important repairs done to the premises. The work is expected to take around 10 days. During this time there will be no one available to take phone calls and we will have no access to emails. No staff will be available for valuations. We apologise for any inconvenience. Hopefully we will be sorted, tidied and everything back in place by the 10th March, but please try ringing us first around that time just to make sure we are open. Thank you

Toppermost of the class?

Quarry Bank School plays an important role in the history of the Beatles. Not only did John Lennon attend the school from 1952 to 1957 but he also used a line from the school song to name his first band - The Quarrymen, and from the Quarrymen the Beatles were born.

In the fifties caps were very much a part of school uniforms and this cap is part of the uniform for Quarry Bank School at that time.


Items that revolve around the childhood of group members are often fascinating for fans and collectors alike. Last year we had a number of school photos and there is already an Liverpool Institute Book in the auction this year which features listings for George and Paul, and now we have cap from John's old school. I wonder what will turn up next!

The cap is estimated at £50-60
