Was this the one mentioned here (http://www.institutions.org.uk/reformatories/ref/industrial_school_staff.htm)

Liverpool St. George's Catholic Industrial School for Boys West Derby Road.
Hon. Sec. Rev. James Nugent, 22 Soho Street, Liverpool.

If so, there is more information here (http://www.missing-ancestors.com/LIVERPOOL%20BOYS%20REFUGE%20IND%20SCH%20LIVERPOOL% 20INFO%20PAGE.htm)

More like an Approved School which is what most of them became. The site that Muttley mentioned has information on the "Commitment of Children to Certified Industrial Schools".

I found a reference to St George's Certified Industrial School for Boys on http://www.liverpool-schools.co.uk which says it was in Everton Crescent until closure in 1862. It was supported by Father James Nugent so presumably became the one mentioned by Mutley. That one became an Approved School in 1933.
