ContextHigh Carley Hospital Special School began as Oubas House Children's Sanatorium School. It was opened in 1928 by Lancashire County Council for the accommodation and education of tuberculous children who were treated at High Carley Sanatorium, Pennington near Ulverston.
The school and accommodation was based at Oubas House in Ulverston and remained there until 1950 when it moved into High Carley Annexe, becoming an annexe to High Carley Sanitorium. Previously some of these buildings had been used as the High Carley Infectious (or Isolation) Hospital.
The children's annexe, with education provided by High Carley Special School closed in circa 1975.
From 1950 Oubas House in Ulverston became a maternity home which closed in 1971.
