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.

Robotics day 2016

 

 

 

 

 

In February the Computer Science department were delighted to welcome staff from the University of Liverpool to deliver a session on Robotics. Groups of year 8 pupils were given the opportunity to program 'Lego Mindstorms' robots, and learnt how to control them using different motors and sensors. Everybody involved made a great effort, and the University staff were impressed that some teams managed to get their robots to sense when they were approaching a barrier and to turn around. We discussed links with real world Computer Science, such as the use of artificial intelligence in self-driving cars. Pupils were also encouraged to think about the wide range of careers that use the skills and knowledge gained by studying Computer Science and ICT.

Maghull High School and Granada TV

The school has forged strong links with Granada TV, our students having featured in 3 political debates in the lead-up to the 2015 General Election. Recently, 2 of our Year 13 students, Emma Bentley and Aaron Boileau, were invited to take part in a round-the-table discussion of current political issues. They were chosen to represent first-time voters in the North West. Other panel members were Professor Jane Green (political expert from the University of Manchester), Qassim Afzal (leading Muslim community leader), Daniel Hewitt (ITV political correspondent) and an undergraduate from the University of Salford. The discussion was featured in Granada's weekly politics show.

 

Aspiration Ambassadors

On Friday 27th November, our Aspiration Ambassadors had the pleasure of meeting the local Labour MP Bill Esterson. The students had been researching Leeds University as part of their 'University of the Month' project and contacted Mr Esterson for an interview as he was fortunate enough to attend this university. Ella Corlett and Sadie Carney did an excellent job as interviewers and the other ambassadors showed Mr Esterson their PowerPoint presentation and noticeboard that are displayed in the foyer. We would like to thank Mr Esterson for coming into school and giving up his time for this interview. It was an enjoyable morning for all!

Business Studies Trip

A group of year 11 business studies students from Maghull high school have spent time with Radwraps entrepreneur James Maddocks designing new educational radiator covers for schools around the country.

Radwraps is the new and innovative way to cover radiators with any image or design. This means: no burns, no heat-loss, no screws.

This month saw year 12 and 13 art students visiting a variety of museums and galleries to help inspire their current coursework projects.  All students had the chance to photograph and draw from a range of objects and a great day was enjoyed by all.  We look forward to seeing the work generated on our return.
