About the school

Upton Hall School is an 11-18 Catholic Girls Grammar School, in the Wirral, with approximately 980 students on roll.

You will join us at a particularly exciting point in our history as the current Head, Mrs Patricia Young, retires after 21 years in post and the current Curriculum Deputy, Mrs Andrea Gaunt, takes over the leadership of the school.

The vision of our school is encapsulated in the six FCJ core values: Excellence, Companionship, Dignity, Justice, Hope and Gentleness.

The school was described by Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ and was judged by the Diocese of Shrewsbury in May 2013 as an outstanding Catholic school.

We offer a varied curriculum and strive to provide an educational experience that will enable our students to achieve their full potential in every aspect of their development, both in school and as active members of the wider community. All members of the school are encouraged to understand and appreciate what it means to be a British citizen and what it means to be a member of an FCJ community.

All staff at Upton Hall, teaching and support, have a crucial role to play in setting standards. Through a professional, caring and sensitive approach based on mutual respect, we achieve a great deal. In particular, we expect all staff to be committed to our FCJ ethos as we encourage our pupils to use their talents and gifts in the service of others.

Our school is best described by Olivia, our Head Girl:

“Upton is a Family. There is a real sense of community which is truly unique and has shaped my journey which I know will lead me to success.”
