Liverpool School Board was one of the School boards in England and Wales established under the Elementary Education Act 1870.

Liverpool School Board was composed of 15 directly elected members. Each voter had fifteen votes to cast and was "entitled to divide his fifteen votes amongst as many of the candidates as he pleases, or to give whole fifteen to one candidate." [1]

The majority of members elected stood on religious tickets.

School boards were abolished by the Education Act 1902, which transferred control of state funded schools in Liverpool to the Education Committee of Liverpool City Council.
