Headteacher’s Welcome

Maghull High School is proud of its ethos and standing within the community. Our talented and committed staff are dedicated to enabling each pupil to reach his or her full potential and to become mature and responsible citizens.

Stitch a Tree Exhibition

The artwork of students and staff from Maghull High School is currently on display at the Whitworth Gallery, Manchester, as part of the project ‘Threading Bearing Witness’. The project aims to connect communities and individuals across the UK to show support for displaced people around the world. All of those involved stitched a tree which was arranged into a large embroidery called Forest by the artist Alice Kettle. Forest is on display until 24th February 2019.

Design Competition

Over 50 students' artwork has been selected to be entered in to a competition through

'The-Old Piping Bag’. 

The students have all drawn designs for insect themed cake moulds, with the winning design being manufactured and sold with 25% of the retail price being donated to the Essen Parent's charity.

The winning mould will also be on show at Sweet Impressions' garden showpiece in Germany. 

Year 11 Revision and Intervention

Dear Year 11 Parents and Carers

We hope you all had a lovely Christmas  and are looking forward to what will be a busy but exciting year for your sons and daughters. We would like to share with you the intervention and revision calendar for the Spring term that shows when the extra sessions will run this term. Some parents will have received a separate letter before Christmas to inform them that their child is expected at either English, Maths or Science intervention. Please encourage your child to attend all core subject intervention if they have been invited. All students in year 11 will receive sessions on revision and study skills this term during tutor time and enrichment lessons. They will also receive a special two hour revision skills session from an outside specialist who has previously worked with our students. The independent study that students complete at home is vital towards pupils success. Can I please ask that parents encourage their child to complete at least one hour independent work each night and build that up to two the closer they get to their exams. We look forward to seeing all parents at the second year 11 parents evening on Wednesday 30th January.

Many Thanks

Mr Couttie and the Key Stage 4 team.

Students make their mark

Pupils and staff of Maghull High School joined Wates Construction and the Department for Education to celebrate the completion of the steel frame of their new two-storey school block on Gainsborough Avenue, Liverpool.

Year 7 students, along with the head boy and girl, Sonny Garside and Ayse Ozcan, were invited to sign a section of the steel and include letters they had written within the fabric of the building, leaving their mark on their new school.

The students were joined by the school’s headteacher, Davina Aspinall and Chair of Governors, Geoff Howe for the ceremony, with representatives from Wates and the Department for Education also attending.

The event marked a major milestone in the progress of the project, which will include a new school hall, dining room, dedicated performing arts suite and two floors of cutting-edge classrooms.

At completion there will be more than 4,000 tonnes of concrete and 250 tonnes of steel, which in total is two fifths heavier than the Eiffel Tower. When laid out end to end the number of bricks used will stretch as far as 33km, three and a half times as tall as Mount Everest.

Paul Dodsworth, Managing Director, Wates Construction North, said:

“Work has been progressing exceptionally well at Maghull High School and the team is on track to reach the completion date of spring 2019. It was fantastic to have the students and staff take part in the ceremony, as it not only marks a great achievement for the project but also the start of a brand new future for the school.”

Geoff Howe, Chair of Governors at Maghull said:

“We have waited a long time for this.  The children so richly deserve to be taught in a modern state of the art building.”

Headteacher, Davina Aspinall added:

“This is a wonderful opportunity for all of our pupils, staff and the community.  We hope it will reflect hopes and aspirations for the future and uplift experiences at Maghull High School for all.”

The project is part of the DfE’s Priority School Building Programme 2 (PSBP2) and is the first of three school rebuilds that Wates Construction will deliver across the North West.
