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. 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 cultural experiences.


We have a long standing and supportive partnership with the Southport Learning Trust and will have completed the formal transfer to join their Multi Academy Trust on 1 November 2020.  Joining the Trust will help to further improve the life chances of all students we teach and achieve excellent outcomes for the children of Maghull High School.

Maghull High students honoured in Diana’s name

Maghull High School is delighted to announce that sixteen students of the school have been publicly honoured with the Diana Award.

The Diana Award was established in 1999 as a lasting legacy to Diana, Princess of Wales’ belief that young people have the power to change the world.

The award exists to celebrate young people who support others and strive to improve their communities, demonstrating the qualities associated with the late Princess – compassion and selfless commitment to enhancing the lives of others.

The sixteen students receiving the award make up our school Peer Mentor team.  They are a group of students, trained by the Well Young Person project, to support other students throughout school.  They work through the Phoenix Centre and carry out a host of duties, mainly supporting our anti-bullying strategy and working with more vulnerable students but also playing a part in recent fundraising efforts.  They have been given the group Diana Anti-Bullying Award.

As well as this, two of the group have received their own individual recognition – Jay Wainwright has been given the Diana Champion Volunteer award for his invaluable contributions throughout his five years in school but in particular for his sacrifice of two week’s summer holiday last year to help run summer school, where he was a fantastic role model for our new Year 7 students.  John Smith has been given the Diana Courageous Citizen award for his courageous approach to life which has seen him succeed in the face of adversity.

We at Maghull High School are extremely proud of our students in gaining these awards and would like to take this opportunity not only to thank them for all of their endeavours but also to congratulate them for this fantastic achievement.

Sefton Bullying Conference

On Wednesday, 21st November, we went to Bootle Town Hall for the annual anti-bullying conference. Kayte Walsh from Bullybusters was there and spoke to us about the different forms of bullying. In groups with students from other schools, we had to decide on a definition of bullying and we watched a powerful film called ‘Denial’, which we then discussed. The Anthony Walker Foundation came to tell us the story of Anthony and we watched a video about hate crime. As well as this, we had a talk about hate crime from a police officer from SIGMA, who gave us a helpline number for victims of this.

The day was fun and educational and the other students were really friendly. The lunch was good too! Now we have to prepare a presentation to deliver to the Peer Mentor Student Council group to pass on what we learned, making sure that other students in our school can benefit from the information we brought back from the day.

Writing competition

Emma is a winner in Sefton writing competition

Year 10 pupil, Emma Brown, entered her poem “The Drawer”, in the competition ‘Sefton Celebrates Writing.’ A few weeks ago she received an e-mail inviting her and her English Teacher, Mrs Tramantano, to the awards evening. They suspected at that point that she might have received an award, but couldn’t be sure. The event was held at the Clifton Hotel in Southport – the room was full and the presenter was David Lonsdale of ‘Heartbeat.’ Firstly the runners-up were announced – and Emma’s name was called out!

Emma received a cheque, a certificate and was invited to read her poem which she did, wonderfully – though Mrs Tramantano did notice her hands were slightly shaking! Whose wouldn’t in front of all those people?

During the evening, all the winners read out their work and were entertained by a professional rasta Liverpudlian rap poet too!

Hopefully, more pupils will enter the competition next year – but in the meantime – WELL DONE EMMA! WE’RE PROUD OF YOU!
