Art department trip to Unit 12

Have you ever wondered what an artist does? Where they get their inspiration?

That’s exactly what MHS GCSE and A Level Art students were wondering about the artist Jennifer Collier and they went on a trip to her gallery, Unit 12 in Staffordshire to find out.

On the day students met Jennifer Collier and found out what it’s like to be a professional artist.

Jennifer makes amazing textile and craft pieces, using plastic, paper and fabric to create waxed paper to turn into things like lampshades and shoes.

Our Art students had a go at wax trapping and each produced a beautiful sketchbook and pair of shoes. All of the work will be submitted with their final coursework and exam projects.

All in all it was a brilliant day. Not only did the students walk away with a new set of acquired art skills but Miss Garnett and Miss Jones did too! Look out for a wax paper shoe project coming our way soon!

Dementia Conference

Students from Maghull High School who performed music for the recent dementia conference for schools at the Liverpool museum, also attended by Angela Rippon and co organised by students from Maghull sixth form and St Vincent's school for the blind. Here we can see five of our year 9 students with Julia Bryan, senior education manager at the museum.

Easter revision

We want to congratulate all our year 11 pupils on successfully attending Easter revision school. We are pleased to report record numbers attended over the two weeks. Keep up the good revision in preparation for your GCSE exams. As we can see, our pupils had a well deserved break during the session.

Year 10 Business Breakfast

Students met with managers from differing business sectors across the Merseyside region and discussed how they managed to reach their job and any barriers they have faced along the way.

The girls also celebrated International Women's Day with their Business mentors.
