Welcome to Ellesmere Port Catholic High School

We are focusing all our efforts and talents on what we have a burning desire to achieve: to become an outstanding school.

Our June 2015 Section 5 Ofsted inspection rated the school GOOD in all areas and stated: ‘Outstanding leadership has been the catalyst to substantial and rapid improvement. This is now a school to which staff and students are proud to belong and where students’ achievement is improving apace.’ The report also highlighted that ‘The school provides a broad range of both academic and vocational subjects and higher ability students make good progress’.

Our October 2015 the Ofsted inspection of the Religious Life of the school rated us GOOD saying ‘The sense of aspiration seems to permeate throughout all areas of school life …. There is a culture which encourages everyone to do their best’ and that ‘There is a strong and effective pastoral support system in place to support students with different needs’.

Our mission statement is:

"I have come that they may have life and live it to the full" John 10:10

The school's clear vision is:
• Promote the dignity and worth of each person
• Strong catholic Ethos
• Ensuring every child is known
• High Expectations of everyone
• Excellent Leadership at all levels
• Excellent Teaching
• Exemplary Behaviour and Personal Standards
• At the Heart of the Community
• Promotion of British Values

Our Priorities:

• Raise achievement – meet targets for GCSE and BTEC results
• Develop the quality of teaching – 100% of lessons as "Good or Outstanding"
• Develop leadership – all staff leading learning
• Behaviour and Safety – improve attendance and reduce exclusions
• Literacy and numeracy – promote effective literacy and numeracy across the school

Our aim in the next two years is that we reach a 80% pass rate in all areas.
