Head Teacher Welcome

Thank you for joining us on our website and for your interest in Deyes High School. I am both honoured and delighted to be the Head of School and to lead it in our next exciting stage of development. Deyes High School is a Lydiate Learning Trust school serving the community of Maghull and beyond by being a beacon of excellence: a school which opens the doors to opportunity for all its students; a school where there are no limits to ambition.


Deyes High School has a long and successful history of both academic excellence and a supportive, caring culture. We are a vibrant and forward thinking school where teaching and learning is at the centre of all we do. We are a proper school where everyone is welcome and everyone is given the opportunity to thrive and succeed. We are proud of our high standards in every aspect of daily life at Deyes High School. Core values bind our community together and provide us with a common purpose. The challenge is to provide all this and more, to enable the aspirations of our whole community to be realised.

Our vision is clear. We will engage, enable and empower our students by making the process of learning vivid, challenging and enjoyable. We will focus on the development of the whole student, treating each of them with the same kindness, dedication and consideration we would wish for our own children. We will have high expectations of every member of our school community because standards matter. As a result, our polite, enthusiastic and ambitious students develop a love of learning and a passion for subject knowledge which enables them not just to dream about achieving, but to truly succeed.

Deyes High School is an extensive learning community in which we are all active participants. Our subject specialist staff are part of a culture of self improvement which promotes expertise that is infectious in a classroom. Consequently our environment is stimulating and supportive. Our classrooms are dynamic and purposeful. Our school is a happy place to grow and learn, feel valued and respected.

The curriculum we deliver is underpinned by the responsibility we have to prepare our students for college, university, apprenticeship and future employment not only with their exceptional academic results but also their confidence, resilience and citizenship. Deyes High School students will always consider the interests of others as well as themselves. They will always think globally, weighing judiciously how they can effect change for the better. They will always be proud to say that they are part of our school.

We hope that in browsing this website you will gain insight into life and learning at our school. So if you would like to learn about the school first hand, please contact the school office to arrange a visit at your earliest convenience. Our staff and students will be delighted to share with you their experiences and insights into what makes our school exceptional. We are already looking forward to extending a warm welcome to you at Deyes High School.

Welcome from Ann Stahler

CEO and Executive Headteacher of Lydiate Learning Trust

As Chief Executive Officer of Lydiate Learning Trust I am privileged to work with Deyes High School and the great team of Governors, staff, students and parents that make up Deyes High. Together, with my Executive staff and Trustees we share the same values and ambition for all across our learning community, we challenge and support each other to Engage, Enable & Empower.

The Lydiate Learning Trust is a network of schools and academies working across communities in the North West of England, including Sefton. The Trust is founded on the core beliefs that every child should be afforded the very best opportunities in life. We engage with all within our Trust and beyond to enable them to show the world their particular strengths, their ideas and their passion. Our partnerships across the region are helping to ensure that this opportunity is extended to as many young people and the excellent staff in our schools guarantees academic excellence and a fundamental ethos of aspiration that inspires all of our students to flourish, achieve their goals and fulfill their potential.

As CEO my vision is to support every member of staff, and as many young people as possible, to discover and achieve their personal best. The Trust is committed to the pursuit of excellence, with young people at the heart of everything we do and personal wellbeing prioritised at every stage.

Everyone has a part to play in Lydiate Learning Trust and everyone is listened to. Team work is precious, but so too are initiative and originality. We encourage positive attitudes and a “can-do” culture. We aim to provide a secure, safe environment in which all of our learners feel valued and where they can develop the skills, attributes and confidence which will serve them well throughout their life. We are fully inclusive and we are very proud of the high level of achievement and attainment of all of our youngsters, both in terms of academic success and participation in the many other opportunities that we are able to offer.

I hope this website gives you a flavour of Deyes High School, thank you for your interest. We hope you will want to come and join Lydiate Learning Trust, and in particular, Deyes High School and we look forward to working with you in the future.
