  • 16-Jul-21 End of Year Message from the Headteacher

    Dear Families

    I hope this letter finds you and your loved ones well as we come to the end of a most extraordinary academic year. Whilst we have managed periods of self-isolation, lockdowns, cancellation of exams, the process of teacher assessed grades and much more, I have been pleased to see how this crisis has brought many of us closer together and I thank you for the support you have given the school throughout the year. As a school community, we have worked incredibly hard to provide home learning opportunities and I know that many of you have risen to the considerable challenge of home schooling to ensure that our students, your children, have continued to make progress.

    Dear Families

    We have had an urgent safeguarding alert from the Hub about an online platform called Monkey Web.

    ‘Please take some time to pause, remain calm and use the information that we’ve provided on our website before talking to the children in your care. It is important that we don't incite their curiosity further.’

  • 12-Jul-21 Important Message for Yr 13

    Dear Parent/Carer

    As you know, we had hoped to gather our Year 13 pupils this week for their rearranged liturgy, followed by a celebratory barbecue. However, in light of the continued rise in infection rates in the North West, and the delay in reducing social distance guidelines, we have had to take the sad decision to cancel the event in school. However, we will send this out virtually, via Google Classroom, so that all of our pupils can spend some time watching and reflecting upon their SJP journey.

Aspire not to have more but to be more...

St John Plessington Catholic College is an Outstanding Voluntary Aided Catholic 11-18 Academy. We serve the population of the Wirral and are oversubscribed in all year groups with 1609 pupils.

We have received many accolades over the years including in 2010/2011 the Times Educational Supplement's "OUTSTANDING SECONDARY SCHOOL OF THE YEAR" award. We have achieved the status of a High Performing Specialist School and, as a National Support School, a Leading Edge School as well as a National Leader of Education, we provide service and support to other schools in the local area and the wider region.

In May 2013 we received our second Outstanding OFSTED judgement (previously Outstanding in 2007) and were delighted to have been awarded best Mathematics Department in the Times Educational Supplement awards of 2013. In 2014 we were awarded the status of National Teaching School, reflecting our key role in helping other schools to be successful as well as helping to train the next generation of outstanding teachers and leaders. Further to this, we were, once again, shortlisted for Outstanding Secondary School of The Year in 2018 which is a phenomenal achievement.

We are very proud of these external validations of our success but value above all else the hard work and support of our community of pupils, families and staff. Working together in partnership we believe that anything and everything is possible. We are proud of the fact that we do not select our pupils by ability or social class but instead uphold our Christian values that all children are welcome in our community.
