A Specialist College of Science and the Visual Arts.
Head Teacher Steve Dool.
Over 1700 students. We admit students attending our partner primary schools: Bishop Wilson, Neston Primary, Parkgate, Willaston and Woodfall and those living in our designated area. The school is regularly over-subscribed with large numbers of students opting to come to us from the surrounding areas of Wirral and Cheshire. Our value added score, at every level, and in both genders, falls within the top 25% in the country. A staff well-being programme and professional development links with Chester University and the General Teaching Council has led to us becoming one of a hundred Teacher Learning Academies in the country.
In July 2012 Neston High School became an Academy.
The most recent OFSTED inspection rated the school good.
In February 2015 the school received planning permission for a new three-storey building: building began in 2016, opened in September 2017.
The school is working with a charity ‘Future First’ to develop a network of past pupils. Log onto www.futurefirst.org.uk and add your details. Then the school can keep in touch with you – and you can let us know if you would like to share any skills with our pupils.
Press Release August 2017 – Neston Tops 100 A* and A grades
Neston High School students, staff and parents are celebrating after another year of continuous improvement in Sixth Form Results. Although students achieved 100 A* & A grades, this was underpinned by solid performances by students also delivering over 270 good passes at Grades A* to C or equivalent.
Most importantly, students on the whole achieved qualifications necessary for them to continue onto high quality destinations which include the best universities, colleges and apprenticeships. Headteacher Mr Steven Dool said “we are particularly proud that, while the range of top performers achieving the very top grades have increased, we are equally proud of the high number of students who achieved grades beyond national expectations. All of our students are unique – they each had been set challenging targets to aim for, and whatever their level of ability the vast majority have exceeded these targets. Key to these fantastic results, as always is the partnership between parents, students and teachers; they all deserve our warmest congratulations and we look forward to hearing about our students’ continued success in the future.”
