About Maghull High School

Maghull High School is a mixed 11-19 comprehensive school of just over 1000 pupils, with specialist status in Performing Arts. The large majority of students are White British, with small numbers of European, African, Asian and mixed heritage students.

Our school is increasingly becoming the first choice for parents. As a result, we are again, currently oversubscribed for our September 2020 intake.

We are very much looking forward to formally joining the Southport Learning Trust in November 2020.

The school serves students from a full range of social and academic backgrounds. Our pupils arrive at Maghull High School from more than 30 primary schools with a wide and variable range of skills. The school has a long history of outreach work around transition with our high number of partner primary schools.

Attainment at entry is usually slightly above national average.

The percentage of disadvantaged students is slightly above the figure for other schools nationally but fluctuates across the school. The proportion of students who come from homes where adults have higher education qualifications is below average. As a result many are the first in their families to go to university.

The school site is in Maghull but the school draws pupils from a wide and socio-economically highly diverse catchment. Over 400 students live outside Sefton in four other Local Authorities, mainly in North Liverpool and Knowsley. The majority of our students travel to school by public transport.

As a result of our strong recruitment process, our strategic careers guidance and our revised entry requirements, retention in sixth form is positive. Approximately just over 70% of Year 11 students progress into our sixth form.
