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 are delighted to have now formally joined the Southport Learning Trust in November 2020.  Maghull High school are looking forward to working in partnership across the Trust to help to further improve the life chances of all students and achieve excellent outcomes for the children of Maghull High School.

Threading Bearing Witness

Students and staff at Maghull High School are supporting the art project ‘Threading Bearing Witness’ who aim to connect communities and individuals across the UK to show support for displaced people around the world. All of those involved have stitched a tree which will later be arranged into a large embroidery called Forest by artist Alice Kettle. Forest will be displayed at the Whitworth, Manchester, in September 2018 and at the Winchester Discovery Centre, from 15th October to 26th November 2017. All of those involved have relished the opportunity to make artwork for such a good cause.

The metaphor of trees and forests provides a way for us to think about safety and shelter. By coming together to make a large artwork, we are able to actively show our support with those seeking safety and shelter around the world, and hopefully raise funds to help them.

Former Student Success

Congratulations to former student James Nixon, who left us in 2008 to pursue his dream of becoming a jockey.  As we are sure many of you will know, James won the 6.20 at the Aintree Grand National Festival on Saturday, on Havana Beat.  Growing up in Aintree, James has always had a fascination with the Grand National and first sat on a horse during a holiday in France at the age of seven or eight.  When James first told his friends that he wanted to be a jockey, many of them did not take him seriously but he was determined to follow his dream.  He is now enjoying competing as a professional jockey and had this to say when we contacted him, “If my story helps students to do what they want in life and makes them realise it’s not about what people think about them, that’s great.  It’s about what you put your mind to.”  We couldn’t agree more James.  Well done and good luck in your continuing career.


Celebrate Opening of Maghull North

On Friday 16th March a selection of over 40 Year 7 and 10's artwork was unveiled to celebrate the opening of the new train station, Maghull North. This was a brilliant opportunty for all of our students, thank you Merseyrail. 

Maghull North train station is due to open this June.

Manchester University STEM Challenge

Five of our very able year eight students were invited to the University of Manchester recently to enter the Faraday Challenge.  Students aged twelve and thirteen compete against one another to see who can design , create and promote the best solution to a given challenge.  All challenges set are genuine, real life- engineering problems. Our budding engineers, working with BBC Micro:bit, created a code , which generated an ear piercing noise if you accidentally touched your phone whilst driving. Presenting to the judges from the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, they came a very close second. They worked so hard and were a credit to our school.  

Well done year eight!
