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.

Update on School Kitchen

We are pleased to say that the Caterer is working very hard to extend the lunchtime offer and from tomorrow curry, rice and pasta will be available as well as Panini's and toasted sandwiches.

Could we please remind parents that students are not permitted to leave the site during lunchtime and that only cold packed lunches are allowed.

Thank you for your continued support

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.

London Art Trip

On Monday 1st December Miss Garnett, Miss Jones and twenty year 12 and 13 students enjoyed a trip to London. It was a jam packed day of Gallery visits and drawing with students collecting valuable research to be used towards their A Level studies. 

Computing Workshop

MyKindaCrowd and CragRats delivered a computing workshop on November 27th to year 8 students recently in partnership with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS)

TCs are the IT consulting arm of Tata Group

The students participated in several to gain practical insight into these IT trends and then in group they had the opportunity to develop their own app of the future and present it to the rest of the class

The course was delivered by Samantha Michaels and Owain Ford, with support from two colleagues from TCS.

Samantha commented: 

“The MKC with TCS workshop at Maghull High was a great success!  The year 8 students were full of enthusiasm and were engaged from the very start of the session.  The students participated in group discussions and it was great to see so many hands up to answer questions!  The groups came up with really great ideas and both the MKC and TCS team were really impressed by the work produced in such a small amount of time!  The ideas were all things that the students had a passion for and were actually excited about!”

Just some of the ideas for a new App

Where’s my Bus App to tell you if the bus is late, give alternative routes, tell you how long it might take to walk

•Applying Style

•Automatic  emails sent from your favourite stores, scan bar code, or take photos of items, footwear section, helps you decide what to wear based on weather and your style

•Id App- everything you ever wanted to know and have from 1D

Well done to all the students, it was a really fun, productive session!!  Big congratulations to the winners of the App design:
