St John Plessington Catholic College is a Voluntary Aided Catholic 11-18 Academy. We are part of the Holy Family Catholic Multi Academy Trust. We serve the population of the Wirral and are oversubscribed in all year groups with 1629 pupils.
We are the lead school in the Inspire Learning Teaching School Hub, one of only 87 hubs nationally.
We are very proud of the 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.
At SJP, we recognise that improving educational outcomes is the biggest way we can positively impact our students’ futures. Curriculum means more than just a set of results. It includes a child’s intellectual development, social and emotional development, citizenship and responsibility, happiness and success - we call that the SJP experience.
Respect is a deeply held value which permeates all aspects of life at St John Plessington Catholic College (SJP) and underpins the design of our curriculum and everything we offer our students. We believe in the transformative power of education and know that it is one of the most important weapons in the fight against inequality, inequity and poverty.
Access lies at the heart of our educational philosophy. In all that we do, we ensure that every student has the opportunity to engage with our curriculum offer, removing any potential barriers and creating opportunities for excellence. Thinking is at the heart of our curriculum offer.
If our students leave us with a sense of agency - the capacity to act autonomously and make their own free choices - we will have fulfilled our aims.
