For many, the first impressions of our school will be the grandeur of a very traditional building with a rich history. Behind the frontage though lies a modern 21st century learning environment providing high-quality teaching and learning and student support for the young people of Frodsham, Helsby and the surrounding area.
Built in the 1930s and having celebrated its 70th birthday in 2019, the former ‘Runcorn County Grammar School’ is today a large, over-subscribed 11-18 comprehensive school, serving over 1,350 students from both north Cheshire and Halton – a number which includes over 250 students in its large and vibrant Sixth Form.
Visitors comment on the calm atmosphere in the school and we are proud of the mature behaviour and enthusiastic approach to learning of our students. Supported by the expertise of experienced, dedicated teaching staff our students make excellent progress and enjoy a wide range of character building opportunities.
Whether you are a parent of a Year 6 student in one of our partner primary schools, with whom we have excellent relationships, a parent looking at our school for their child in the future or just a casual visitor to our website, I hope that the information presented will give you a sense of the opportunities available at our school.
