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.

Art Trip

A small group of Year 11 and 12 students visited Unit 12, Stafford, to work with the artist Jennifer Collier. All students learnt a variety of new sculptural techniques and enjoyed creating artwork for their coursework, mainly based around the theme of 'Sweet Treats'.

Students will continue to develop these new skills they learnt now they are back in school.

Claire Young

Claire Young gave an inspirational and motivating speech at our recent presentation evening. She handed out the awards to our students and complimented then on their hard work and accomplishments. She also complimented our drama,  dance and musical students who performed at the event.

Made famous by her role as the highly driven runner up of series four of 'The Apprentice', reaching the final watched by over 11 million viewers, Lord Sugar dubbed her a 'Rottweiler' for her tenacious approach and mind set of never giving up.

Claire climbed the FMCG ( fast moving consumer goods) career ladder starting out in roles at Colgate Palmolive, L'Oreal and Superdrug. Today she runs her own business, 'School Speakers' and has co-founded 'Girls Out Loud 'a social enterprise working with teenage girls 11 to 18 years old. She works within the media as a journalist/radio presenter in addition to working with the government on projects helping young people onto the career ladder and more women in business.

GCSE Results

Year 11 Success Secures Record Results

We are delighted with the results obtained by our Year 11 students this summer with A* - C grades in both English and mathematics exceeding 70%.

The record results in English were particularly impressive with over 75% of the year achieving A* - C and almost a quarter of all grades being A or A*. Staff have been working hard with students to stretch and challenge the most able and we are delighted that in both English and mathematics A*/A grades more than doubled and across all subjects more than 43% of students obtained at least one of these highest grades. In the performing arts students in drama achieved an outstanding level of success with over 40% of all grades awarded being A*/A.

Congratulations to all our students and best wishes with your Sixth Form courses.

School Exchange to China

Group

Last week, five members of our teaching staff paid a return visit to Minggang High School in the town of Beilun in Ningbo, China. The staff enjoyed five days of cultural exchange and had the opportunity to observe lessons in the school, discuss educational practice and policy with staff and attend the school’s art exhibition. As well as this, staff discussed opportunities to share ideas in mathematics, art, sport and science and how to develop our student links further through the use of IT. The group also enjoyed a visit to a renowned local kindergarten and a special school called the Sunshine School. They found out lots about local business by visiting the Beilun port, an import centre and a clothing factory, as well as the mountain wind farm. Our Chinese friends were extremely welcoming and the staff involved are now experts in using chopsticks. The link between our school and Minggang has been further strengthened by the visit and there are plans for a return visit by the Chinese staff and students, after which we hope to take some of our students to Beilun.
