  • SJP Welcome Back - Update

    Firstly, many thanks for your support and cooperation in ensuring that the return to school has been smooth and positive for our young people. We do hope that you and all of our school community are keeping well during this time. We are delighted with the way that our pupils have returned to school and the level of maturity with which they have dealt with the new school routines. Our new Year 7 cohort have settled in so well considering they did not have the opportunity to visit SJP prior to joining in September. They are a credit to the school, themselves and you for the way in which they have conducted themselves over the last week. Read more...

    Staff and pupils should wear face coverings when moving around school, such as in corridors and communal areas (unless they're exempt) Face coverings won't generally be necessary in classrooms, even if social distancing isn't possible

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 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.
