Welcome to West Derby School


Welcome to West Derby School, a Specialist Academy in Maths and Computing, serving boys only in Key Stages 3 and 4, and welcoming girls into the Sixth Form. We are a popular and over subscribed school with a very special and warm ethos.

We welcome the fact that our students are individuals with differing backgrounds, talents, aspirations and needs. We offer a full range of academic and enrichment opportunities to all and we are very proud of the boys’ achievements. All students are entered for an extensive range of examinations.

We want our students to be happy and successful, to be good citizens and to enjoy their years with us. Staff are committed to continuous improvement and constantly strive for excellence, working to develop knowledge, skills and interests and building confidence for future challenges in life.

Our school believes in the principles of dignity and respect for all. Staff, students and the Governing Body are committed to these values, and expect all members of our school community to live up to them.

I am proud to be the headteacher of West Derby School. Boys come to us from over 40 primary schools throughout the city because parents know their son will not only be happy and safe here, but will also achieve his very best.

Margaret Rannard, Headteacher
