Hope High School, in Skelmersdale, is a small school for young people aged 11 to 16 who have individual needs based on Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties.

We are a purpose-built school with facilities designed to support our learners towards success. Our facilities include a modern computer suite, a fully equipped cookery room, design technology workshop, an art studio, a forest school area, a sports hall with gymnasium and climbing wall and of course classrooms each having the latest learning technology.

Our school boasts a fantastic staff team committed to improving the life chances of our young people. Our expectations are high. We aspire for pupils to flourish and succeed – socially, emotionally and academically. We personalise the curriculum and strive for every learner to make accelerated levels of academic progress. We build upon their interests, their strengths and learning styles whilst acknowledging what motivates them to learn.

Our experienced and skilled staff use their expertise to tailor individual strategies to improve pupils’ self-esteem and confidence, which we understand is a foundation for success. Young people develop their ability to build relationships, develop positive behaviour and become motivated and enthusiastic learners.

At Hope High we understand the importance of home-school partnerships and we keenly encourage active participation from all parents and carers. This includes regular communication via each pupil’s key worker, regular coffee mornings and barbeques. All parents and carers are also encouraged to play an active part in the target setting and review process which is in place for all pupils.
