Welcome to Woolton High School – Liverpool


At Woolton High School, we care about each learner that comes through our door. We have developed our motto ‘Woolton High CARES’ (Commitment, Achievement, Respect, Enrichment, Safety) which underpins and guides all elements of our daily practice as a school. We hope that with us, all children will make progress academically, socially and emotionally, so that they are well prepared for the next stage of their learning or employment.

Pupils will have access to a curriculum that is well organised, personalised and meets their individual needs.  They will be taught, by ‘Outstanding’ teaching staff, in a way that involves and motivates them and they will be supported to achieve by well-planned learning, thorough assessment, honest feedback and educational support.  Learners will be challenged to make progress consistently and fairly by using a range of strategies appropriate to their individual needs. Every learner will have an identified member of staff that they can talk to and be listened to so that we can ensure that they are safe, happy, healthy and learning throughout their time at the school.

Woolton High School will ensure pupil progress for all learners by working closely with parents, carers, guardians, a wide range of external agencies and the Governing Board of the school.
