Bootle is a town in the Metropolitan Borough of Sefton, Merseyside, England, with a population of 51,394 as of 2011; the wider Parliamentary constituency had a population of 98,449 at that time.
Bootle, historically part of Lancashire, grew rapidly in the 1800s due to its proximity to the Irish Sea and the industrial city of Liverpool to the south, first as a dormitory town for wealthy merchants and then as a centre of commerce and industry in its own right after the arrival of the railway and the expansion of the docks and shipping industries. The subsequent population growth was largely fueled by Irish immigration.
During World War II, air raids against the port and other industrial targets severely damaged the city. Post-war economic success in the 1950s and 1960s was followed by a decline precipitated by a decline in the international significance of Liverpool Docks, shifting levels of industrialisation, the development of modern suburbs, and the expansion of industries into the Merseyside hinterland. In the 1980s, there was a sharp increase in unemployment and a decline in population. Large-scale revitalization projects have begun to assist in revitalizing the local economy.
Hugh Baird College on Balliol Road is the only institution of higher education in the city. The college offers over 300 courses ranging from Entry Level to Level 3, A Levels, apprenticeships, and university level courses and degrees to over 7,000 students.
On Stanley Road, a multimillion-pound facility known as the L20 Building was inaugurated in January 2014. This building houses a University Centre with open-plan study areas for students enrolled in university-level programs.
