Our school is a very special Catholic community, in the heart of Skelmersdale, where everyone works hard to ensure that our exceptional young people receive an outstanding education, in an environment where they are cared for, and where they can fully develop and thrive. Our Mission Statement 'In Christ We Grow' recognises that gospel values are at the centre of every aspect of school life. Our staff place outstanding relationships with young people and their families at the heart of all that we do. Our culture is one of compassion, care, humility, gentleness and forgiveness. Our expectations are high for every young person, and we expect everyone in our community to strive for excellence through caring, sharing and achieving their very best. We provide outstanding opportunities, with year-on-year investment in our school environment, with excellent facilities to learn in and where we have the highest standards of academic achievement, of appearance, of behaviour, attitudes and respect for all. The curriculum is very carefully tailored for our young people, and the extensive wider curriculum opportunities and achievements are exceptional, including in Sports, Music, Dance and Drama. Our standards are high and together with the very strong pastoral care and links with families, and all the opportunities for individual personal development, we ensure that we do all we can so that they are able to fully develop. Our school is regularly oversubscribed with first choice applications and has grown in recent years so that we have around 900 students on roll. We regularly receive awards – we are a Flagship School for Inclusion, we have the International School Award at the highest level, and are a Music Mark School. We are proud of our strong specialism in Engineering over many years, and our dedicated STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) Co-ordinator provides enrichment activities and events for our school and the local community. Our Lady Queen of Peace has a local, regional and national reputation for delivering high quality Engineering and STEM related courses. We are delighted that we are regularly selected as being in the top three of all Liverpool Archdiocesan Schools through various nominations. Recently we have been successful in being nominated in the top three schools for Sports Achievement Award and Contribution to the Community Award. We were overall winners in the Creative Team Project of the Year Award. The culture of this school is one of hard work, of service and of a genuine commitment to providing the highest quality of educational experience possible for our young people. This is not a school for those who seek a quiet life. We seek applicants who genuinely enjoy working with young people, to join our talented body of professional and exceptional staff, who will always give whatever is needed for our young people. We are proud to belong to a community that values and respects every person and strives for a world class education for all. Outstanding Archdiocesan Report “Our Lady Queen of Peace High School provides outstanding Catholic Education. Students are confident and proud to belong to their school.’’ Flagship School for Inclusion Quality Mark Report “A school that is clearly at the heart of its local community where inclusion is ingrained in the very fabric of the school and care, nurture and support are at the centre of everything that occurs here, for staff and students alike.” International School Award “The school’s fantastic international work has rightfully earned it this prestigious award. The International School Award is a great chance for schools to demonstrate the important work they’re doing to bring the world into their classrooms. Embedding an international dimension in children’s education ensures that they are truly global citizens and helps prepare them for successful lives and careers in an increasingly global economy.” Ofsted January 2020 “Students typically enjoy coming to school. They get on well with each other, feel safe and appreciate the work of staff” “Students benefit from a broad range of opportunities to enhance their personal development” “Leaders…have high expectations for all students”
