Headteacher’s Welcome

Maghull High School is proud of its ethos and standing within the community. Our talented and committed staff is dedicated to enabling each pupil to reach his or her full potential and to become mature and responsible citizens. We have a vibrant extra-curricular life not only through our specialist status as a Performing Arts College but also through our extensive sports programme and much more besides.

Computing and Robotics Workshop

 

 

 

 

 

On 30th March three groups of year 7 and 8 Computing pupils enjoyed a visit by Dr. Katie Atkinson, lecturer at Liverpool University. They worked together in small teams to write programmes which were then downloaded to the ‘Mindstorms’ robots, giving them instructions about how to move around the room following the instructions they were given.

Art Department Trip to Paris

During February half term 35 pupils from year 9, 10, 11 and 12 had a wonderful time in Paris. We visited the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Sacre Coeur, the Louvre and the Champs Élysée.

We also had great fun in Disneyland. A truly unforgettable trip!

Accelerated Learning

 

 

 

 

 

Accelerated Reader is the most popular reading practice software in schools today. This innovative programme makes reading fun for struggling young readers. Progress is measured through quizzes, focusing on reading practice, vocabulary and literacy skills.

We are on our third year of the programme here at Maghull High and it has enabled staff to test, monitor and measure the growth of pupils reading ages through on-line testing and quizzing.

The LRC/Library has thousands of Accelerated Reader Books from reluctant readers to classic fiction and non-fiction across the years.

Reading lessons are incorporated into the timetable together with tutor time and intervention sessions.  The pupils are encouraged to read for pleasure at home and parents can monitor their child’s progress on-line via the Home Connect service.
