New Build Updates

Maghull High School New Build

We are excited to be able to tell you that after planning for our new school was finally passed earlier this month, contractors from Wates will be arriving on site from Monday, 12 March.  The initial work before Easter will involve the siting of the builders' compound, with an area from Gainsborough gate to a portion of the field being fenced off.  Staff have already been briefed on the implications for movement around the site and maintaining the safety of our students, which remains at all times a key priority.  Next week, all students will be briefed in assembly about what this means for them and how the work will progress.

We anticipate moving into our new accommodation around Easter 2019 and look forward to keeping you informed over the coming months of developments as they occur.

And so it begins

Friday 20th October saw the first step in the move towards our wonderful new building when engineers and contractors from Wates arrived on site to start pegging out the site of the new build. Over the coming months, staff and students will no doubt grow accustomed to the sight of high visibility vests and hard hats, as the new main building takes shape. Some year seven students were able to meet a couple of the contractors to find out a little more of what we might expect over the coming months.


We are one of only 277 schools in the country that have been successful in being selected for the government’s two billion pound Priority Schools Building Programme 2 and we are delighted to be able to announce that we are looking forward to a complete rebuild of our main block.  Work will commence in the autumn term this year and we expect to move into our new building in January 2019.  The layout of our site means that there will be no disruption to our students’ learning during the project.  We will continue to use the existing building during construction, which will only be demolished after we have moved into the new build.  With a new school hall, dining room, dedicated performing arts suite, two floors of classrooms and other facilities, the new building promises to be impressive.
