The Mosslands School is a secondary school located in Wallasey Village, Wirral, England. It currently has about 1,200 pupils and over one hundred staff.

The school first came about when Wallasey Education Authority commissioned a purpose built establishment to be sited on Mosslands Drive, Wallasey Village. The school was opened on 27 October 1956 by glass mogul Sir Harry Pilkington and the modern era began with the new school being named the Secondary Technical School for Boys. At the time the school had around 500 pupils with 20 staff.

In recent years the site has moved from two sites to one larger site. The former lower school annexe for years 7 and 8 was demolished, and the upper school site (years 9, 10 and 11) expanded to accommodate pupils from all years.

The new site contains science laboratories, art studios, music suites, computer rooms and a library. Extensions provided rooms for humanities and improvements to Languages, Maths and English. In 2004, The Mosslands School became a specialist Technology College.
