Year 7 First day arrangements

We are looking forward to your child starting with us on Tuesday 2nd September. On that day, they will have main school to themselves as the remainder of our students start on Wednesday 3rd September. We will expect the students to gather on the back playground by the Gainsborough entrance no later than 8.45am in order to be organised for assembly in the Arts Theatre.

We have planned an exciting programme of activities for the day, including time in tutor, a tour of the school, team building games and Laser Quest. The students will also have their photograph taken on that day to ensure swift production of their catering/library cards. In the interim period they will be given a temporary catering card without a photograph, which they will be able to use on that first day.

Students are expected to wear school uniform and will need to bring their school bag with full equipment, including their Nexus. They will not require PE kit on their first day.

If you have any concerns or queries regarding your child’s start at Maghull High School, please do not hesitate to contact school on 08444773438 or email bennett.m@maghullhigh.com.

Book Nominees - Reviews

As in previous years the reviews could be hand written, typed on blank paper or into the pro-forma provided. Plain or coloured paper, were also acceptable. Illustrations could be included but the judging was on the quality of the written response to the book.

Members of the Senior Library Management Team had then judged the reviews.

On the day of the awards - The reviews were displayed in the Atkinson Library or Arts Studio, grouped by title.

Awards & Certificates

A prize was awarded to the pupils judged to have written the best review, for each book – (6 prizes in all).

I am pleased to say that two of our pupils; Alicia Oldfield and Erin Craine (Year 7) both won in this category and received a prize (£5 book token) for their amazing written reviews to the books.

Please see all the pupils’ reviews on the school website together with pictures.

The pupils were a credit to the school on the day and enjoyed a tour of the new refurbished Atkinson Art Gallery and Library. We are so looking forward to participating in next years Sefton Super Reads already!
