The Local Governing Body of St John Plessington Catholic College, having considered the provision of efficient education and the use of resources, proposes to amend the Admissions Policy for September 2021 with a reduction in PAN (Published Admission Number) to 255.
The consultation period commences 13th December 2019 and will run until the 24th January 2020. This is in accordance with the timescale set in the admissions Code, to consult for a minimum of six weeks between 1st October 2019 and 31st January 2020.
If you wish to respond to this consultation, written comments should be sent, no later than 24th January 2020, direct to Helen Caul, Clerk to Governors at the College address or via email – firstname.lastname@example.org.

The proposal is that we reduce the lunch time for students and staff from 50 minutes to 40 minutes. The 10 minutes ‘gained’ would then simply mean school finishes 10 minutes earlier at 3.10pm rather than 3.20pm. The beginning of the school day would remain the same.Find Out 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 1546 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.
