As a year eleven at Greenbank High School, I have had countless opportunities throughout my five years to represent the school in new and exciting ways as well as learn new skills and sports along the way. Examples of this are public speaking, the drama show, the design and technology competition, mock trial competition and netball. I have been able to broaden my skill set at Greenbank thanks to the staff putting in a lot of hard work so students can try new things. Being a member of Greenbank High School is a huge honour for me and I am extremely grateful to the school.
I like Greenbank because the teachers are very supportive and they are always there for me if I need support. Also, they are passionate about what they teach and this inspires me to work hard. Another reason why I like Greenbank is because everyone is so kind and positive. This makes the Greenbank learning environment very enjoyable. If I didn’t go to Greenbank, I don’t believe that I would be the person that I am today, or believe that I could fulfil my potential.
I love Greenbank High School and all the opportunities it has offered to me. Over the past 5 years I feel as though I have flourished as part of the Greenbank community. The approachability of the teachers and resources available to us has made this possible. The memories I have made at Greenbank will always be cherished.

Maghull High School
I have been here two weeks and I came from Kirby C of E. The teachers are very nice and I feel happy here. I am settling in well and I have made some new friends. High school is very different to primary – it is not what you are used to but you will fit in well and have a good time. Remember to be yourself – that’s my top advice.
I have been here for two weeks and I am settling in well. I like the teachers, and being here is a lot of fun. I have made lots of new friends and I feel like a Maghull kid already.
I have been here for one year and I came from Rice Lane. The staff have helped me settle in, they are kind and caring and always on hand to answer any questions or queries I may have. During my time here, I have gained so much confidence. I had the opportunity to give a speech at the open evening in 2019 and also delivered to the food bank. I have been able to represent the school at cross-country.
I have been here for two years and I came from Hudson primary. All the teachers and staff are really nice and will help you with anything. I have been involved on student council, school tours, open days, performances, competitions, athletics and lots of other events. My advice to any new student is don’t be nervous, get involved and get to know people and offer help.
I have been here for two years and I came from Barlow’s primary. The teachers are lovely people; they treat you well. In lock down, I attended as a key worker student and the staff were brilliant. I have been part of the student council, football team, and athletics. I also represented the school at the town hall event. I have participated in gifted and talented workshops. My tip would be to talk to a member of staff if you have any issue, and make sure you choose the right sort of mates.
I have been here for two years and did an in school transfer. In my previous school, I could not settle with the teachers. Here the teachers are good and everyone is so happy. I have been involved in a primary liaison project and also, the school football team.
I joined from Summerhill primary and have been here for four years. I like the teachers because they are fun. I have been involved in Millionaire’s Club, student council, cross-country and represented school in the 1500m at the Sefton championships. People are nice here and everyone is so helpful.
I joined mid-way in year 8 and went to Millbrook primary school. Teaching is good, but sometimes I find the pace a bit quick, but that is probably just me. It is a nice environment and I like the people here, definitely better than my old school. I have been involved in a project with HMRC and have been on a visit to Edgehill University. I also went to Paris and Euro Disneyland for a few days on a science trip. We are treated like adults here and I have a lot of fun.
I started school at Millbrook C.P School in Kirkby and after spending 5 years there, I decided to choose Maghull High School as my next step. All together, I have spent a total of 5 years at Maghull and now I am continuing at Maghull High in their sixth form. At GCSE level, I studied seven subjects, maths, science, English, R.E then I chose a further three subjects: drama, Spanish and engineering. In year 10, I also decided to do further maths and single science. Now at A-level I have decided to study, philosophy and ethics, government and politics and history. I have made these choices, as I would like to study law at university. I enjoyed my years at Maghull High as it is a very welcoming environment and I am happy with the positive relationships I have made with the teachers.
